This is What We Witnessed Today

Little Adam, Grandma Delores and I went to see this

via satellite at our Stake Center today.
It was incredible and a first-time experience
for Adam.
I'm so glad I was able to share it with him and my mom.
There's nothing quite like witnessing a Prophet of the Lord
dedicating one of these sacred buildings.
I can't wait to take my children to see it in person!
The experience also put me in memory mode.
Of this place and a time long ago.

This is the Provo, Utah Temple.

I spent many an afternoon growing up on this hill, in this spot.
Whenever I go home, I don't always have time to stop,
but I at least take the time to drive by.
I am so grateful for the peace these buildings
offer when you are worthy to be inside.
I have often received solace just being outside the building.
The next few weeks will offer many changes,
decisions, dilemmas, you know what I mean.
I am grateful for my belief in the power of prayer and fasting.
Grateful for wake up calls when you don't realize yourself
just how far off the path you've become.
So grateful for close friends and family.
It had become easy to forget who I am and
go with the flow of the world around me.
I am rededicating myself to who I am.
Just so you know.

Thank you. I needed to hear this. I think many people needed to hears this. It is really easy to step of the path, but it takes work to find, or get back on it, or to stay on it. I love you and miss all of you.

We just had the dedication of the Oquirrh Mountain temple last summer. An amazing experience!!
