It Was Expected...


It happens every time. You make plans to go to the temple and at some point during the day you plan to go anything and everything will go wrong. It is that sort of day...although I have to admit, nothing seems ALL that bad. Ask hubby and he will tell you he thinks differently.
We decided to downsize a few items in anticipation of our move and since we have the space available we have put our patio furniture set...10 pieces and extremely bulky inside the store. While cleaning the cobwebs I was crouching down and my knee decided it no longer wanted to straighten. It comes with the territory...years of volleyball, skiing and soccer will do that to you.
My point is...does this happen to you?! well, not the knee thing, but does your whole world seem to be crashing around you everytime you decide to go to the temple? Everything will hit from traffic issues to work. It will be miserable up until the time we go....and yet we will go and we will energize ourselves in the heavenly peace that prevails within the hallowed walls.

So glad you endured. It will bless you more than you think. Sorry about your knee too. Ouchy.

It seems like lots of people have this problem. However, I believe fully that Satan can be 'bound' in our individual lives RIGHT NOW. and if we can get to that point we're good. Here is a quote by Pres. Faust: "The bounds of the adversary are set. If we are striving to keep the commandments and to abide by the covenants we have made with the Lord, the adversary will not frustrate our progress." Ensign Nov 87. What a promise eh?
Plus I like to believe that I can live my life to be of so much good and service that when I get up in the morning Satan says- Oh crap, she's awake! LOL
Have a good one!

Almost everytime an invite to so something else comes up and one that it makes it very hard to choose! Next time don't tell Satan when you're going maybe he will leave your knee alone :)

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥
