A Beautiful Place and Cute Faces

Last night for Family Home Evening we went to our temple, the Columbus Ohio Temple. Who would have thought that when we moved out here from Utah we would be closer to a temple than we were in Utah!
As Nate gave a short lesson about the temple, I thought about its importance in my life and the significance of the things I learn and feel there. It helps me apply principles to real life situations that I experience everyday...reminds me to work on not speaking badly of others, to have patience with my family and those around me, to try to always have love in my heart...things I need help with each and every day.
And it especially reminds me of the how lucky I am to have family and friends and to make sure those relationships are nurtured and treated with great respect and care.
This might be my last post before we take off on Saturday. Things are getting busy!
These are all pictures that I stole from Monica. Thank you for always being the picture taker!

Good luck with the drive and move.

I love the temple!! I'm glad you were so close to one. It now takes us an hour to get to the closest one in Dallas. I sure wish it was closer.

So cute Jess. I can't believe you are leaving so soon. It came too fast. We will surely miss you guys. I know that Todd really enjoyed your husband as his companion for home teaching. Thanks for all your kindness!!! Good luck with the big move.
