My Friend Cheri and her husband posted this quote from Joseph Smith on their blog in reference to their little sweetheart Macie, who passed away last Saturday. I was thinking that they were such a strong family to have these thoughts during such a hard time.
"The Lord takes away many, even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man and the sorrows and evils of the world. They are too pure, too lovely, to live on earth. Therefore, if rightly considered, instead of mourning, we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil and we shall soon have them again." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 196-197).
