my turning point

there was a sister in my ward that was going to the temple for the first time and i had been organizing everything so that evan and i could go.
i got evan to free up his evening, got the babysitter...and when we're all ready to leave, evan looks at his temple recommend and it expired at the end of the month. I was thinking mine had a whole year to go, but when i got it out...it was already expired!!!
my heart dropped.
i was so upset.
i got everything else ready, and how could i have forgotten about my recommend??
really!! how could i have??
the one time in months that evan and i could have gone together and i totally blew it.
can't stop getting all frustrated thinking about it.
and almost all of march the temple is closed for cleaning :(
anyway... sunday, at testimony meeting she bored her testimony.
i couldn't but relate so much to her.
i went and talk to her afterwards.
i had the same feeling when i entered the temple for the first time: 
this church is so true!
the temple was my turning point.


after my experience at the temple there is nothing, or no one that can tell me otherwise.
it's not like i ever had doubts... i just knew that i will never have doubts.
i knew that if we ever have any chances of making it back to God's presence it will be by abiding to every principle and ordinance that this church has to offer
i hope not to sound arrogant or overbearing... but there is no other church that has full truth, full authority and power to help us have what God has. Be who He is.
and one of the signs of how i know this, it's because in no other church are there temples.
i love the temple.
i love the opportunity i had on sunday to have an interview with my bishop and later with my stake leader to have my recommend extended to me again.
 i can't wait for the temple to open again so i can go in and feel of His love.
can't wait!

Oh my goodness! That's so disappointing! I can imagine how frustrated you must have felt. Did you at least get to go out still and have a date?

I love your testimony, Esther! It's so powerful!
