I have been extra busy lately. Lots to do during the day. Lots to do in the evenings. It has been very busy.
Yesterday, I had a post planned in my head. It was to go something like this (with the list of things to do for the wedding) Wedding Dress: Check, Boys' outfits for the wedding: Check, etc. I planned to end with Temple Clearances: Not Yet.
BUT....as I was leaving this afternoon to go to CK's apartment to eat lunch with him, I checked my mail. There they were: two letters from the First Presidency. I was sooooo nervous.
One thing I knew for certain is that their decision would come back EXACTLY as it should. I mean, who better to receive direct revelation from the Lord than His Prophet? Nobody. If the answer had come back that we had to wait or "No" on being married and sealed in the temple, we would have gone from there and prayerfully made other plans.
BUT.....We don't have to worry about it. We were granted our temple clearances and we will be married and sealed at the same time in the Idaho Falls, Idaho temple on July 30th. :)
Yahoo! It is a bittersweet moment for me, for sure, though. I was surprised that the finality of it did hit me a little. That is how it is supposed to be. Marriage and sealings should not be taken lightly. I did not. Now, however, I am looking at 29 days and I will be sealed to my best friend. Life wasn't what I expected, nor wanted, but a loving God has taken care of me through every step, every tear, and every heartache. He has blessed me with a man that loves me and cherishes me in a way that I could never have imagined.
I am blessed. Oh, so blessed.
