I'm Going There Someday...Very Soon!

When I was little, I sang a song that went like this: "I love to see the temple, I'll go inside someday...For the temple is a holy place, where we are sealed together. As a child of God, I've learned this truth: a family is forever."

Dustin and I are getting ready to make our wedding slide show (typical, I know). I was scanning in pictures from my childhood last night (by the way, pictures from ages 0-8 are a lot more fun than pictures ages 8-17) and I found this one:

(And yes, I still sport the hairstyle today)
The temple mold I am holding was placed on the tables at my parent's wedding reception. It is the Manti, Utah Temple-where we were sealed as a family for time and all eternity. The man that sealed us as an eternal family lived in my dad's hometown. Years later, after our family grew (and boy, did it grow) we ran into President Gardner.

Here is our eternal family and the man who sealed us, with the right authority from God, and his beloved wife:

How cool is that? How awesome is it that I have a family here on earth, and through Heavenly Father's plan, I can be with them through all eternity?

Now, again, years later, I am preparing to enter the temple. That same temple located on the hill in Manti, Utah. I'm going to be sealed to the love of my life. Not just until this life makes us part through death-but for all eternity.

I'm so glad I was taught so young the importance of the temple.

PS, 50 and counting!
