This weekend Devin and I had a little Valentine date. We went to the temple and to a cute little Italian deli on Main for lunch.
The temple was wonderfully uplifting as usual. The sealer reminded us that we go to the temple so the Lord can "mold us, shape us, and polish us" to be the person he wants us to be. Then, we go back into the world and they use sandpaper on us to dull and scrape us up. That's why it's important to return to the temple often so we can be close to the Lord and he can continually shape and polish us. I thought that was a great visual example to remember.
I'm so thankful he chose me and that there is no "until death do us part" in our marriage. We will be together for eternity; even death can't break the ties. That is true happily ever after!
