Temple Day

I am LDS. I am so so grateful for this gospel in my life. It hasn't been easy. Sometimes it has been really hard. Through heartbreaking trials there were points where I just couldn't understand a Heavenly Father who could watch his children go through so much. I felt abandoned. Later I realized it was all out of love. All because he knew my future. He knew I could push through and reach for him and he would at times be the only thing pulling me through. During those hard times I came to the conclusion that I would never be married again. I was afraid of it. I just simply didn't want it or need it. I was ok with being a gypsy, a nomad, a forever traveler. When I met Kevin my whole life changed. All the sudden I felt loved, I felt in love. I couldn't imagine a life without him. And when he asked me to marry him, I felt no sense of doubt. Only an overwhelming sense of this is exactly where I am supposed to be, exactly who I am supposed to be with. I love this man. I love him for making me a better person. I love him for growing my testimony more and more. I love him for taking me to the temple. I trust him with all my love and that he will be here with me for time and all eternity. I cannot possibly even express to you the deepest joy being in that temple making such a life changing decision and knowing I will be with this man forever and he will be with me. I almost still can't believe I went from where I was to where I am today.
Being in that room seeing all of our families and closest friends faces was so so special. We felt the spirit so strongly and knew this was the right place to be married.
I couldn't be happier. It has a lot to do with this man but it also has a lot to do with this gospel. It is true. I am the luckiest.

  2. No to trying to be noisy at all - maybe a complete opposite - but I would have never thought you were married before. I love this, it reminds me of the saying "things fall apart so good things can come together" - or something like that. So happy for you!

  3. This was beautifully written - thanks for sharing! I remember on my wedding day, walking into the sealing room and seeing the faces of my loved ones smiling up at me - I still don't think that moment can be topped. Glad you has such a magical day, your love is beautiful! Xoxo

  8. I’ve had a couple of events at this vow renewal location. The only thing that would have made these guys better would have been better communication in the earlier planning stages, but it all worked out great in the end.
