you like those musical notes?
I went to the temple on Saturday with my family (minus Erin, Rick and their babies, and plus Seth). It was a beautiful experience. Everything was so clear up there. Thoughts are uninterrupted and there is knowledge to be gained on every level and topic.
I spoke on Sunday in my home ward and also in the Singles branch. The Lord blessed me and I was able to have the companionship of the Spirit as I bore my testimony. I was able to speak more freely and more directly from my heart than ever before. It felt so good.
That, plus the temple, has made me incredibly exhausted.
Seth spoke in the home ward as well. We've been friends since high school (he was baptised when we were 17) and he just returned home from serving a mission in Nicaragua. He gave a wonderful talk. I learned a lot from him. I'm grateful to have seen him for about a week before I head out; it's been good.
So, about 3.5 days and I'll be a missionary.
