After years of refusal (an interesting story about me and "My Plan", rather than my Heavenly Father's plan for me...) and months of not seeing, I was prompted. NOW was the time. Now was the time I was to go through the temple. Not live worthily and see what happens, but "Do what you are supposed to do to be ready...NOW." So, after a meeting with the bishop, a time goal was set, callings were accepted, assignments taken on. He, of course, kept close tabs on me...and after I got through my speaking assignment in Sacrament Meeting last week, I was called in again.
"Do you remember what time we said?"
"Yes. How many months has it been?"
"About three months."
"Go ahead and pick your date...you're ready."
I've never been so happy, giddy, smiley, bouncy in my life. I called and made the appointment this morning! I'm going to the 10 AM session at the Salt Lake Temple: ON MY 30TH BIRTHDAY! I'm feeling butterflies: that wonderful mix of anticipation, wonderment and excitement all rolled into one. It feels like I have so much to do-and learn before I go through...with so little time to do it in...but it absolutely feels...
*I'll keep you posted. :)
