The decision is made

I planned to get married in Dallas. I have planned that since the divorce was final. The Dallas Temple is where I went weekly for solace, direction, and comfort in the midst of my heartaches and pain. It wasn't even much of a question-not only is it "my" temple, Dallas is where my ward family is and my dear friends and angels are. No question. Dallas it was. CK agreed. His family was prepared to brave Texas heat in the summer to be here and support us.

Lately though, something just didn't feel quite right. As I opened my heart to listen to the answers, it was clear. I don't really know why it even matters, but, somehow for some reason, it does. So, we are getting married here:
This is the Idaho Falls, ID temple. There are a lot of good things about me getting married here and now that the decision is made and it feels sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo right, I am so excited and I see daily more and more reasons for this to be the place.

I am grateful that CK allowed me to come to this decision on my own. Now that I have decided (and never before), he told me that he wanted to get married in Idaho. He never pressured me. I honestly didn't even know that was what he wanted....even when we talked about it and I asked, he always said Dallas was great. What a man. I am so lucky and so blessed and the more that this becomes a reality, the happier I am. A new page has turned. I finally don't feel scared. I trust CK completely and I know we will be happy together-happier than I could have dreamed. Isn't God great? He takes tears of sorrow and heartache and turns them into tears of joy and happiness. I have always been taken care of by Him. The miracle is....He will take care of YOU that way, too! :)

Idaho Falls Temple is so beautiful. You will love it. AND, maybe I can come. It's not that far from A.F.

That is a beautiful Temple. One of my favs...mostly because that's where I was married. :)

I'm glad you've made it full circle. God will take care of all of us if we but let him.

This is so exciting! So we will be up there in Idaho Falls around the 8th of July for Ryan's sister's wedding. Congrats. And yes, I agree-- Heavenly Father will take care of all of us that way-- we just need to learn to listen and act upon the promptings we receive.
