tomorrow, my life will change
because tomorrow i am going through the temple.
as someone who is preparing to go on a mission, i couldn't be happier and more excited. it has been the only thing on my mind lately, and it's hard to even comprehend that the time has finally come. i feel like i have been waiting my whole life for this day, and it is finally here. less than 24 hours and my whole perspective on eternal life, special covenants, and every aspect in the Gospel will completely change. i will be a whole new person with a whole new attitude about this beautiful life ♥ and i couldn't be happier about it
actually preparing to go through the temple has really helped me. my dad and i have talked a lot and he has prepared me so well for the temple. it has been such a blessing that i have him as my stake president AND dad so that he can be right by my side. having conference this past weekend was even more of a blessing. the men that spoke gave me such direction and guidance. this long time primary song has also been on my mind all week long as i have been preparing to go
i love to see the temple
i love to see the temple, i'm going there someday. to feel the Holy Spirit, to listen and to pray. for the temple is a house of God, a place of love and beauty. i'll prepare myself while i am young; this is my sacred duty. i love to see the temple, i'll go inside someday. i'll covenant with my Father; i'll promise to obey. for the temple is a holy place where we are sealed together. as a child of God, i've learned this truth: a family is forever.
tomorrow is that day. tomorrow i get to enter the House of the Lord. tomorrow couldn't come sooner.
