Week 48 - Temple Thursday!!!

Hello Everybody!!!

So this week I am writing today on Thursday because we went to the Boston Temple today!!! So I had to switch my preparation day to today! 

 (Stock photo as it was Raining on us today)

And boy did we have a lot of laundry after a week and a half haha! But the temple was great!!!

Sister Fairchild, our ward's Relief Society President, took us - we love her! We had to leave at 8 and it was POURING RAIN!! Like, more rain that Utah gets in two years haha! So much rain and traffic. 

So we got to the temple and barely missed the 10:00 session, but that meant we were able to do some initiatories! Yay! Then we did an 11:00 session. I had asked our mission mom Sister Blair what I could do to get the most out of this experience and she counseled me to focus on one principle and learn all I could about that principle. So I focused on Faith, and it was really cool. I learned a lot. 

Also it was really, really special as it was a tiny, tiny session so we were basically the only people in it. At the end, Sister Fairchild, Sister Sellers and I were all sitting on the couch in the Celestial Room admiring the chandeliers and talking about what we learned. And I looked up at the stained glass windows and you would have NO CLUE that there was a giant storm with rain and wind and dark skies going on outside. The light streaming in through the windows and the bright peace that I felt was incredible. The temple, and the gospel really, is a refuges from life's storms. 

Afterwords we walked out into the rain and wind. We went to a crazy mall food court to get Chick-Fil-A! haha :) Usually the frantic mall is kind of overwhelming, but today it was like we had this little bubble of peace and spirit around us. So cool :)

I hope you all have a beautiful week :)

I love you!
