I had the most wonderful, amazing opportunity to be the escort for one of my friends, Dawn, as she made the decision to go through the temple to receive her endowment. I was honored to be her escort on her special day. It was a lovely evening in December and we had a wonderful time. It was fun to go and be there to help her as she went through the temple.
Before we went up to the endowment I had the opportunity to sit in the brides room as I waited for Dawn to get ready. As I sat in there in awe at the beauty and splendor I was filled with peace. I took a moment and looked in the eternity mirrors. I looked behind me and I thought of those who had come before me. Who had strong testimonies and joined the church so that I was able to be in the temple at this time. I then looked ahead and thought of the generations that are to come and my little girls who are already here. Thinking about how all my decisions I'm making are affecting generations both ways. And how all I wanted was to keep all the links connected that we may all live forever together. How blessed we are to be members of the true church and to have the knowledge we have. It made me so excited for the days to come when I will be able to be with my daughters as they choose to go through the temple.
It was a beautiful evening and I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to be able to be part of Dawn's special day.
