Yesterday I was privileged to attend a sacred experience for one of my daughters. In our religion we have what is called a patriarchal blessing. It is an opportunity to receive blessings, guidance and comfort designed specifically for you. It is basically a special prayer that is recorded and preserved, designed to be used your entire life.
As expected, we had a wonderful experience. Our daughter was very comforted by how well her Father in Heaven knew her.
I was thinking how sacred some of our experiences are, and how they are not always meant to be shared. Because of the nature of sacred things, I think sometimes the world in general will too easily dismiss them as not of value, but in reality, it is the thing that is most sacred, and most personal, and most private that is often of most worth.
