Today I went to the Temple
Isn't the St. Louis Temple beautiful? When Devin and I lived in Utah, we often would make the comment, "We need to take advantage of temples being so close, because we never will be able to be so close to a temple again."
To our surprise when we moved to St. Louis, we now live even CLOSER to the temple than in Orem. Crazy? yes i think so, but so awesome. A blessing of living in the latter days and temples spotting the earth. So I got to go today. Devin and I switched off and he is there now. I came to a sparkling clean house...Devin is so good to me, it humbles me to the ground when I think about getting to be married to such a person. Well today there were more people in the temple than there were seats in the session, so when I got turned away, just like 20 others, I was the only one that started crying! I was so embarrassed. I'm not even sure why I was crying. This pregnancy I am just constantly crying. Well the temple worker saw me racing back to my locker to change (and hide my tears) and well long story short..they let me in.
I felt so dumb, but that really was the only session I could make that day or I was going to faint of hunger(literally), so I went in feeling dumb but grateful. Then I came home and the house was clean and smelling like lemon house cleaner(my favorite) and I started crying again.
Then I checked out the new church website jesuschrist.lds.org and cried the whole time. Oh man. You'de think I would run out of tears, or kleenex! Pregnancy is so fun.
