It was a special day, and though our families were not able to be in the temple with us, it meant so much to us that they were able to still be a part of the special day and show their love and support to us.
I am so thankful that Heavenly Father has prepared a way for us to be able to be families, not only during our time on Earth, but for eternity.
And I am so thankful that I get to spend eternity with my husband, Thomas John Steele. :)
To me, the temple is a place where I can go to find refuge. It is a place set apart from the rest of the world, where I can go to focus on things with an eternal and spirtual perspective, rather than a worldy one. It is a place where I can feel closer to my Heavenly Father, and feel the peace and joy that can come only through Him and His son, Jesus Christ. I feel very blessed that I live so close to one of the Lord's holy temples and can go there anytime I choose. It helps me to live my life the way that I know God wants me to, so that I can be worthy each and every day to enter in to the sacred house of the Lord.
I also got to celebrate something else very special yesterday....
My little brother came home yesterday from his second YWAM trip to Africa!!!
He has also been to many other amazing places (Switzerland and Egypt, to name a few). I missed him so much, but I am so proud of him and the young man he is becoming. :)
^All grown up. Yes, ladies, he is single.
Love you, Buddy!
