Temple Dedication

I just got home from the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Dedication and I just wanted to jot dwon some of my impressions.
It was such a spiritual experience and I really felt overwhelmed towards the end when we were singing The Spirit of God. I felt we were joined by the angels in heaven very strongly. I was not able to sing during the second verse because of my emotions. Over the years I have found I cannot cry and sing at the same time. Still True!
When I wrote the words "Temple Dedication" for the title of this blog, I was impressed with the way those words can mean two things. One about the actual dedication ceremony and the other about our dedication to Temple service. I want to go serve in the temple more often than we have been. I feel the need to. It is such a wonderful place to be. You can forget the cares of the world for a few hours. We really need to go at least once a month! I mean, we now have about 8 temples within an hour's drive!!! Five in a half hour, so we have NO excuse! Our bishop or Stake President once said to make your date a trip to the temple, instead of always going to a movie or dinner, or whatever else you choose to do. It's probably the cheapest date around!
I will do all I can to make this happen! I love being a Savior on Mount Zion for those who've gone on before, and my reward is getting to be in those hallowed halls!

It is fun having a fast computer!

I'm not really sure what I want to say, but I am sooo happy this 'puter is feeling so much better! It's been fun being able to do things and go plces it just wouldn't go for sooo long! Thank you Mark for your expertise! Anyway, I have tried to update my blog's look, although I'm not completely happy with it yet. How do I get rid of the pink around the banner? Anyone know? I ahve tried a couple of things, which didn't work. Well, I'll keep trying.
Right now I am reading the book, Star Wars: Clone Wars, which is based on the Animated movie that came out to intoduce the series. I find it interesting because you get a lot of what was going on in Anakin's head as he works on his demons from his past and present before he descends to the dark side. You don't get that in the movie. It helps to understand what caused him to fall. Very interesting.

I'm baaack!!!

I'm Back!!!! It's taken a while, but we now have an updated, cleaned up 'puter that allows me to use my blog again! I plan on making some changes when I can figure out how and adding some pictures and whatever else more I can do to make this a fun place to visit. I will do an occasional book review, and let you know what's going on in my life and my family's. I am excited that I will be able to do this now! So, someone give me ideas of where to go to find fun things to do with my blog!!!!
