day 9 – Eternal Creations

Here’s where we were today:

In the Manti temple with family.

Today I am thankful for a creation.  Thankful for temples – “… a place where earth and heaven meet”.  A place to be “taught, guided and blessed”.   I have felt the loving, guiding hand of the Lord in the temple and echo President Monson’s statement, “I think there is no place in the world where I feel closer to the Lord than in one of His holy temples.”

We were able to be there as our sister-in-law’s sister Melanie received her endowment.  I love that the word endowment means “gift” or “bestowal”.

I am also ever-so-thankful for the sealing power in the temple that allows us to be with our families forever.  The creation of my large eternal family is one of my favorite things to witness.  Line upon line.  Ordinance upon ordinance.
