Our Sealing Day

Taking my family to the temple to get sealed was the most joyful day I've had so far in my life... it was heaven on earth!  I was impressed with the kids understanding of what was going on at such a young age, it reminded me of how fresh they still are from God's presence!  Last Saturday, June 20th, was actually a very rainy day but we were all smiles!  We took the kiddos inside the temple at about 2:50pm, were sealed across an alter at 4:20pm, scrabbled to move all of our luau decorations to the church house (because the monsoon rains drenched our original plans) afterwards, then finally fed our guests at 6:30pm!  It was one memorable day.  It was very heavenly and very fun!  Liv explained how she felt to her Grandma Linda by saying "I felt it in my heart!"  Trying to further understand Linda asked, "Inside the temple?"  Liv said, "Yeah," Linda said, "Was it the spirit?" Liv sweetly and simply said, "Yeah!"  Too precious!  I am so grateful for this gift we have to have our families sealed for all time and eternity!

It was such a special day. I loved in the temple when the sealer asked you guys to look in the mirror, and you were like, ya, that's nice, now where are my KIDS! For me, it was a most wonderful experience. I can't imagine the joy you felt to have your family kneel together and be sealed. I love you!
