i have mentioned (i believe) in this blog, that i have a goal, this year ill attend the temple one a month.
all month of february i thought about going, and down to the last wire, i got the chance to go.
i was visit teaching a sister im assigned to, and she mentioned she and her husband were going the next day (last day of the month) for one session.
i asked if i could come along.
so, for thr 1st time, even more so for my sealing, which i found odd, i was actually excited to get there..
i had an inner excitement happening, and a thrill to actually be in the temple, and part of a session.
id never felt that before. and it was a breath of fresh air, to have happen within myself.
i did one session, say next to the sister i visit teach, felt awkward at time, as shse assisted me, shes younger and im oldr, and im supposed to do things for her, or at least i should be, but i havnt been going as much as she has so she knows more, and i still feel like a noobie when im in there.
i have been going to keep God to his promise of temple attendance, he has a few romises, but one that run out to me in a talk given by our steak president, was that if we go to the temple, our families will have a testimony, and be church attenders.
last time i went, the next day, daniel had a plan to get back in our good graces and have the opportun ity to go out to eat with us was to go to church, and attend ALL HIS CLASSES...
he decided that, on his own.
so, i go do the temple stuff this time, and im there for my son, and myself, because i had been dealing with a huge mess on facebook, because i admin a group, and some things were thrown around and said about me, and i had a choie to react in anger, or react with peace and let it all die down, i chose the latter, but that didnt change the way i felt personally about those words and that atack on me...so i felt going to the temple, would be the thing i needed. and i was ready!
so, i went. did the session, and we went back to my car, and i drove home.
that was a friday.
and it was all planned out that daniel was to recieve a calling at church.
and we got snowed in, and church was cancelled, and daniel seemed literally, upset about the fact.
i see the smallest changes in him, not that anything bad, cause it isnt, progress often is slow. we dont get to the top of a mountian in one fell leap, we climb it, and we do it slowly, making sure each step we take is secure, and has a grounded foundation.
im guessing hes exercizing some small amount of faith, which is really all you need to do to build faith up...
so this is another blog about the testimony that i have that temple attendance works to get your family back on track in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
one small step..thats all it takes, yo TRY faith out, you have to be willing to take the risk...
if you never try, you never know, and in trying you might find out, that the result is better than you expected.
