In Royal Courts

Within a year-and-a-half both my grandmothers died. At both funerals the hymn “O My Father” (Hymns, no. 292) was part of the program. The fourth verse reads: “When I leave this frail existence, / When I lay this mortal by, / Father, Mother, may I meet you / In your royal courts on high?”

This comforted me because it told me that my grandmothers are in an exquisite place. I know that if I remain worthy, I will be able to see my grandmothers and my Heavenly Parents again.
