Oops! Sorry, I thought I’d posted this a couple weeks ago. Here it is now 🙂
Low: Sam is teething, poor kid 🙁
Highs: Today was my niece’s wedding and it was awesome to get to be a part of it. She did an awesome job of keeping everything focused on the spiritual aspect of the day rather than all the frills. We started the day by all participating in an endowment session. Eric and I have had a difficult time going to the temple lately because Sam is going through separation anxiety, so we were worried that he was going to make it so we couldn’t go. But when we got to his cousin’s house to drop him off he just hopped down and went straight to his cousin. Apparently he was good for her the whole time! The Lord really does bless you when you are serving Him!
It was really neat to get to do an endowment session as a family. It was really cool to look around the room and realize that all of the siblings in Eric’s family could be in the temple. Not all of them were able to be there right then, but all 9 siblings had received their endowment, married in the temple and was living worthy to be in that sacred place. That was such a neat feeling to be surrounded by faithful people as part of my family. I can’t wait for the day when we can have that experience with our family, although obviously we have to wait until Kyle’s old enough to receive those blessings. It was pretty cool.
Then we got to go straight from the endowment session to the sealing. It was awesome to see how the ordinances all flowed together. You know that they all build on one another but it’s different when you can actually see it right next to each other. I really want to go to the temple sometime and start with doing baptisms and go all the way through to doing sealings. Obviously it would be a long day but I think it would be so cool to see the whole progression in one experience.
