Then withers and goes
When summer is gone?
"To that question we answer no and reaffirm that love and marriage under the revealed plan of the Lord are not like the rose that withers with the passing of summer. Rather, they are eternal, as surely as the God of heaven is eternal.
"But this gift, precious beyond all others, comes only with a price—with self-discipline, with virtue, with obedience to the commandments of God. These may be difficult, but they are possible under the motivation that comes of an understanding of truth."
Our trip to Utah last week for something very special. Chris' youngest sister, Tori, was sealed to her husband, Jon, for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on Wednesday, March 5.
I have known Tori since she was about nine years old and have had the privilege of watching her grow into womanhood. As is the case with all of Chris' sisters, she is very attractive. But as I watched her in the sealing room I was moved at just how beautiful she is. I don't believe I have ever seen her so humble, so demure. Truly, a virtuous woman is more lovely and of far more worth than any jewel.
