temple blessings

Twenty-two years ago I went through the temple for the first time.  It was one of the most happy and peaceful experiences of my life.  I was surrounded by my family and friends, people who loved me and wanted me to be happy.  Some of those same people have since that day returned to live with our Heavenly Father.  I have felt great peace in knowing that through His plan of happiness, I will have an opportunity to see them again. 
      Today Sadie went through the temple for the first time.  She was also surrounded by the people that love her.  My heart was full as looked at my daughter.  She has developed into an amazing young woman.  Her faith at this young age of eighteen is something I could have only hoped for at that time in my life.  I know that the promises she made today will bless her and protect her and help her continue on a path that will ultimately bring her joy, no matter what lies ahead.   

"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing." C.S. Lewis
