We made a special temple trip last weekend with the youth, because we FINALLY, have a 12 yr. old!! It was an awesome trip...though bittersweet- bitter: because I had to wait outside with the littles, but sweet because: dad was able to go in with Sebastian and participate in baptisms for the first time. The Orlando temple is a beautiful temple on sprawling grounds of beautiful lush greenery. The littles had so much fun running around, picnicking, and collecting bugs. I took a pic of each kid in front of the temple and hope to put them on canvas for our gallery wall.
I love the feeling of tranquility the temple gives and the clarity we are given when we pray there. Our family has a lot to be thankful for and a lot to ponder in this time of transition. The trip was perfect timing, as everything in the Lord's time is.
