You're not lost if you can see the temple

I went to the temple this morning, im going to try to make it a habit to go every monday. The temple really is amazing. I'm so thankful I have the temple to escape from the world and be reminded what my purpose in life is. Lauris and Dad gave talks on Temples yesterday. I'm so sad I missed them, but they shared some of it with me. Some of my favorites parts are President Thomas S. Monson’s counsel saying, “As we touch the temple, the temple will touch us.” No matter where our lives take us, keeping the temple as our goal will keeps us from going astray.
It's amazing that their are 146 temples that have been dedicated or announced. The temple gives me something to aspire to, to work for, and to prepare for by living my life worthily each day to hold a temple recommend. Because of the temple I can better understand my purpose here in this life and strive each day to be a better person and live up to the responsibility I have. I LOVE that their are a handful of temples near me. I want to go to all of them.

I found an amazing thing happens going to the temple once a week--my desire to go is different. I WANT to go in a different way then before. I am know longer going just because I know I should. I really hunger for it. The more I go, the more I want to go!
The temple fills me with such peace,clarity,calmness and love!
Going on Monday's will be such a great way to start your week!!
