Temple Work

Today was a very special day. Matt and I went to the Temple and we did my Mom and my Dad's Temple work. I also was able to seal my Mom to her parents. It was amazing. I felt the presence of my Mom so strong. My sister in law sat in as my Grandmother and Matt sat in as my Grandfather and I as my Mother. What was funny was as soon as the sealing was complete and the man performing the ceremony said "Amen" the light flickered. At the exact same moment. It was awesome. I said "did you see that"! And everyone in the room was just as amazed as I was. It was really cool. My Mom was a joker, she would have done that just for the fun of it. My sister in law said she has never meet my mom, and she felt her presence as well. The spirit was very strong and unmistakable. I have felt so good all day long. I miss my Mom. I feel like I have spent the day with her. I look forward to the day I get to see her again.

A new do

So I finally decided to cut my hair. I called and got an appointment right away so that I would not change my mind. I got 5 1/2 inches cut off. My hair feels so much lighter and more healthy. I also had them put some layers in it. I used to have layers years ago, and I really liked them. I can not remember why I stopped having them. I must of wanted something different then too.

Obama is President

Obama is President. I'm SO disappointed.
I must say that I'm SO thankful that the election is over.Everyone in my family is talking about going out and stocking up on guns and ammo, and they are saying we have 2 months to make sure we have our 2 years food storage. C'mon, is it really that bad. Are we all going to self destruct the second he moves into the White House? I'm sure every Christian probably is thinking he is the Anti-Christ. I have heard it from everyone at home and on the internet. That is a very scary thought...for the unrighteous.
When Matt went to his Elders Quorum meeting last night he brought up his concerns to the Bishop. Our Bishop then said " I Promise, he is not the Anti-Christ", he also said that we have 30 to 80 years till the Anti-Christ comes. Also he said " Be ready for world peace",and that we do not have to worry about any of that yet, let our Grand kids worry about that. *sigh* Thank Goodness for a smart Bishop. And you know what, Matt and I believe him 100%. Our Bishop is very Smart and very Spiritual. Oh yeah he also said, Obama might make a good President. That is a good point. So Matt and I decided to give him a chance. We can be grumpy for the next 4 years or we can sustain him.
I hope everyone includes this Country in their prayers everyday no matter who the President is. We are truly so blessed to live here.
God Bless the U.S.A.
