Mother in Heaven
I am delighted to see this new essay on the LDS.org website on our Mother in Heaven. Knowing that we have a Mother in Heaven is a comforting and logical doctrine to me. It follows all patterns set in nature and resonates with the feelings in my heart. I already know that my Father in Heaven loves me, and it would follow as night follows day that my Mother in Heaven loves me as well.
I love the words to the Primary children’s song, “I Lived in Heaven“:
I lived in heaven a long time ago, it is true;
Lived there and loved there with people I know. So did you.
Then Heav’nly Father presented a beautiful plan,
All about earth and eternal salvation for man.
I can only imagine how wonderful it was to live in heaven with Heavenly Parents who loved each child perfectly and taught them carefully in order to prepare us for our journey on earth and provide assistance for us to be able to return to live together again after this life.
I look forward to seeing Them again someday!
