Yesterday, I heard Mr. Packer defending the Church.
Afterward, I heard another Authority. I don’t have my scribbled notations in front of me (I am at the house); but if I can recall correctly, he said something like this around 2:30 pm:
The most noble aspirations of a human are to hope for a marriage that endures after death.
Do you remember that? What were the exact words again?
Here is my thought: the authority actually didn’t speak of the greatest marriage after death. Was he an apostle? I can’t remember. I don’t think he spoke on the true eternal marriage anywhere throughout the whole session.
The last thing I want is my wife hanging continually around me in heaven. Excitingly, I get to present her to the true Bridegroom. I am just a friend.
I didn’t do anything to help purchase her bridal garments. Her Groom purchased by his own blood Kristie’s wedding dress.
I can’t wait to see beyond the earthly pictures of our own wedding to the real, eternal marriage with the One who is perfect Light. Perfect Love.
Now that is a marriage made in heaven.
