Draper Temple

I need to be a better blogger. But I did want to post about going to the Draper Temple openhouse. It was such a fun experience with the kids. We met in a chapel at a nearby church where they showed us a short video with a broad explanation of what the Temple is about and how special they are. I really felt the Prophet's testimony and my spirit grew. I have blogged earlier about my dear Aunt Paula and how special she is to me. She is now on the other side with my beloved brother Jesus and our Heavenly Father. I felt her near me yesturday and know that she is o.k. Her Mom (my grandma) was also very close to me and I was so excited to feel them be with us. I am so blessed to be in this gospel and to be able to have these wonderful experiences that help me get through day to day trials. I know I am not alone and that there are many guardian angels watching out for me and helping me find my way back home. We stood together as a family in one of the sealing rooms where there are mirrors positioned so that we could see ourselves going on forever and ever. It was a beautiful sight and to know that we can be together eternally is priceless. I am very grateful for yesturday!!!
