I circled the lot till finally someone pulled out right by me and I took their spot. Inside I saw familiar faces from church. Temple workers were scrambling trying to service the massive numbers of patrons. I have never seen a temple so busy. It was crazy and wonderful.
It took me 3 hours to get my one family name baptized, confirmed and ready for endowment. But watching my Stake presidency serve as the witnesses and name projector person in the baptistery was a really special.
The temple is always wonderful and always has a great spirit inside but today with what felt like half my Stake in there, it had an extra measure of special and wonderful.
I am thankful to have a temple in our day and for the covenants Jonathan and I made there which bind us and all our posterity together forever.
I am also grateful the lady who double parked behind me today wasn't in a session and could be found so I could get home to my kids!
