I am learning from my grandchildren some interesting acronyms. A new one to my ear is BAE, standing for “Before Anyone Else.” A more familiar one is “BFF” standing for “Best Friends Forever.” I met a beautiful lady many years ago and we soon became best friends forever. She was and is my “Before Anyone Else.” Over the years we have shared everything (including concerns) without reservation, criticism, or judgment. This bond has deepened and increased beyond measure, thus allowing our friendship to flourish. Our compatibility, affection, and respect have even deeper meaning when we consider the “forever” part of the acronym. We have been sealed in the temple of our God by one holding the proper priesthood authority. Ours is an eternal union. “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). I can truly say that I have a BFF who is my BAE—my beautiful wife, Lois. I will cherish her forever.
