Ben & I went on our very first Temple trip together to the Provo Temple yesterday!! I had been awake since 4:30am ( not really sure if it was the excitement or just insomnia) but Ben got to sleep in a little later than I did. We got to the temple around 6:30 while it was still dark outside, and I cant remember the last time I had been awake that early.. EVER!! I have stayed awake until four or later in the morning lots of times but usually don't wake up that early!! It was a great experience to be able to go and do temple service with the love of my life!! He ended up helping out the temple workers with confirmations and even baptisms.
I love the Priesthood and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to marry a worthy Priesthood holder like my Benji. He did an amazing job, I was so proud to stand by him and hold his hand throughout the morning. He also was one of the best people I have ever been "dunked" by!! He definitely made sure I went all the way under the water!! LoL ;) It was such an amazing experience and I was so happy we could start out our day/week serving the Lord!
After the Temple we went to breakfast at IHOP! Their food sure does fill me up!! It was actually pretty good too! :)
I am hoping to have my Endowments soon.. but I know everything is all in good time. I love the Gospel with all my heart and I am so grateful to have the blessing and opportunity to be apart of the Savior and my heavenly father's church! The wedding is inching closer and the days are flying!! I can't believe how close we are! Invitations are finished (HALLELUJAH!!) And just need to be printed and mailed out! :O)
