It's so beautiful here at the temple. The flowers are just gorgeous. I love being outside and walking around this area of blooming purple Echinacea and yellow ones and several kinds of daylilies.We attended the 12:30 session. It was such a lovely session. I really love participating in an endowment session. I do believe that angels are amongst us in the temple.
There is a wedding here today. The bride looks amazing. I always hope that newlyweds will return to the temple often. It's quite common not to come back for a long time.
I look at that Marrone I, the gold statue on top of the spire, and remember the Angel flying in the midst of heaven with the Everlasting gospel to Proclaim to all the Earth.
I'm so grateful that the Lord has seen fit to give us guidance in these last days. You know, yesterday a crack opened up in Yellowstone Park. It's not at the site of the super volcano, but 60 miles away. In terms of volcanic activity, 60 miles is nothing!
I guess this cracked that has opened maybe in preparation for the end at some point in the future. I guess if the Earth will burn at his coming, there's going to be volcanoes period along with all the earthquakes and tornadoes and floods and hurricanes. It's interesting that most people in the world can see the writing on the wall, that the time for mankind on this planet is getting nearer to the coming of the savior.
I may not live to see the second coming, but that doesn't matter, because if I don't see him come here, hopefully I'll see him there. In a way, being in the temple is like being in heaven. There is much to do of a spiritual nature.
The Lord's promise that he goes to prepare a mansion for us, and that if it were not so he would have told us.
It's so hard not to sin. It's just so difficult, but I'm so glad that the Savior helps us with this. I'm so grateful for the sacrament and that I can be forgiven and try again. I'm so grateful for his patients and his understanding of the challenges of Earth life. He blesses us with so much here, we have only to look at it and be grateful, and to be as happy as can be.
That reminds me of the poem I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
The world is so full of a number of things I'm sure that we could all be as happy as kings. Even those who have not have so much. I'm amazed at how much I have, the perfect husband, the perfect family the perfect, even a car and a garden and property in lakes and ponds.
I'm trying to folloe the Spirit, to act on and follow the promptings that I receive. Sometimes it's easy, but sometimes it's very hard. If only I could have met every prompting, and avoid every sin, or difficulty and doing what's right.
At least people can look at me and say well I'm not so bad! It's not easy to always choose the right. Some things get easier, but not everything.
