This is where I have been...

I have been missing in action, but I got to be in attendance of this:
Doesn't she look beautiful? I am so happy for both of them. I love my sister,(I love both of them)
and I am so grateful for their happiness.

As I was sitting in the Salt Lake City Temple, watching my sister and her new husband be sealed
for time and all eternity; I couldn't help but be grateful for Temples and their significance.

I had a card with me that had this quote on it; I feel like it sums up my feelings about Temples and how I am thankful that we have them on the earth. They truly are a magnificent place, and they serve such a wonderful purpose. "God intended the family to be eternal. With all my soul, I testify to the truth of that declaration. May He bless us to strengthen our homes and the lives of each family member so that in due time we can report to our Heavenly Father in his celestial home that we are there-father, mother, sister, brother, all we hold dear. Each chair is filled. We are all back home." -Ezra Taft Benson

I had to look twice. Your sister looks so much like you... beautiful.
I was 19 when I first learned about eternal marriage and forever families. I was overjoyed that finally I'd found a church that taught doctrines I always knew in my heart to be true.
