We went to the temple.  We didn't make it there as often as we wanted or as much as we should have last month.

I felt so different from how I've felt lately.  So unlike the self I've warped into.  I felt warm.  There was no analyzing, no neurotic thoughts.  I wasn't concerned with what I looked like or what anyone else thought of me.  I looked across the room and only saw friendly, smiling faces.  I looked at Drew, and his eyes had that extra shot of blue in them.  Something about all of the white and the lighting, maybe.  They always look bluer there.

I can't name another single place where I feel more like myself than inside of the temple, like the person I was created to be.

Nowhere else do I feel more admiration and love for my husband.  For everyone I know.

Nowhere else do I feel like who I am and what I am is completely satisfactory.

Nowhere else do I feel this sense of confidence, that my potential is endless from the perspective of God.
And that's the whole, complete truth.

  6. i love the temple. i know that feeling. it is like no matter how hard you try, you can't stress out or think negatively while in the temple. it is really my favorite place, and the only place that truly calms me.
