It was day three of our drive across country, from Upstate New York to our new home in Washington State. We were driving two separate cars, so I was alone as we made our way through Illinois, listening to a cd of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The song, “Peace Like a River,” began to play and as I heard the words, “I have love like a river…” I was overwhelmed with a feeling of love: love for my children and family, and feeling the love that my Savior, Jesus Christ, has for me. I felt in a very powerful way the meaning of the Atonement in my life. Tears started coursing down my cheeks and I could barely see the road in front of me. It was an emotional reaction to a song that I had heard many times before without such feelings. I can only attribute it to an opportunity God took to let me know of His love.
