forty-four years ago today
October 22, 1967--I received my Patriarchal Blessing.
These many years later I am still so thankful for the source of care, comfort and guidance it has been for me.
All my life I have been thankful for this personal scripture.
I visited the Patriarch, Alma Dorus Eakle, when I was fourteen years old. It was a Sunday morning and my mother dropped me off at his modest little home in Woods Cross. I went fasting and eager. I had heard about these blessings and was curious to see what this experience would hold for me. Two weeks later when the typed and recorded blessing came in the mail I was pleased to finally be holding my very own Patriarchal Blessing.
"As you seek the Lord in prayer, so shall peace be in your heart and in your home and a haven shall be created unto all who come into your habitation."
Just a snippet of promise and fulfillment.
