Another day..but to our family a Special Day!

Today will mark 3 years since I took out my Endowments in the Timpanogos Temple..but the main reason I will write tonight is that it was another special day...Our little family took a trip to the Distribution Center to pick up Daddy's clothing for his own Endowment which will take place in just 3 short days...I have to tell ya,our morning was a bit shaky..with kids being a bit challenging,a shortage of funds in our bank account,a phone call from my sister Jen regarding my bro-in-law's latest health status went from bad to worse...just kind of hit me like a ton of bricks...

We made it out to the car and as I sat there,I knew Eli was fustrated,because I can just tell in the way he drives,and doesn't talk at all...So as I sat in the front seat,I put my hand on his shoulder and just gave him a tug saying,"All is Well" with a smile..We got to the Distribution Center,and I told my sons if they knew what an important day this was..and they both shouted...YES..Daddy is going to the Temple! Well,I had to explain to them that we were here to prepare daddy with all the clothing that he will need to enter the House of the Lord..and Kingston mean garments? I just smiled..They knew exactly what was taking place and they both were so happy!

As Eli was getting measured,I snapped a few photo's with my cell phone camera..just to catch that moment with our children helping daddy out..I'm sorry to say,that I don't know how to transfer those pics on to here..but when I do,I'll post them...

I just want to end my night with expressing my Gratitude again to our Heavenly Father above and His son Jesus Christ for the countless blessings that he has bestowed upon me and my lil' family..As I usually murmur about this and that..I'm always reminded that my little worries and struggles are nothing compared to what I have been given and blessed with....I am so proud of my hubby! I'm trying to make these next couple of days,stressless and free from worry or anxiety fo him...I remember the days before I went through,and there was alot of fiery darts that were being thrown our way from the Adversary..I know he is trying to throw darts our way this very day..but I know we can conquer..I sometimes still can't believe how far Eli and I have come....Just grateful for so many family and friends who have kept us in their prayers and have been the greatest examples to Eli and I...I hope we can repay them in some small way is the official First Day of Summer..and what a Gorgeous,Beautiful Day it was!

Goodnight all and God Bless

A whole year has passed and it is the year 2010...I'm humbled and grateful for what this year holds for my lil' family.Blessings from above have poured down from heaven abundantly in the last few years and our Heavenly Father has placed special angels here on earth within our path...I have witnessed the hand of the Lord through others and I am forever indebted...In just 12 more days I will be Sealed to my One and Only Love,Elijah with our 3 blessings Kingston,Zion and Siuosamoa...I'm overjoyed that this time has finally come..I would've never guessed that this all would happen just prior to turning 40 yrs old....Thank you Dear Lord for having mercy upon my lil' soul and giving me another chance to make things right...Happiness feels my soul!

Siuosamoa's Special Blessing Day!

There's a certain Spirit in the air when you attend a Fast & Testimony meeting when a baby is going to be blessed....I was the proud recipient of just that today....I want to express my love and appreciation to my Heavenly Father for sending Siu to our family and also to Siu for choosing us as his earthly family...As the blessing was pronounced upon him by my wonderful brother-in-law Marky...MA...(thank you from the bottom of our hearts) there was a very strong spirit that was felt, pure inspiration, and I was very emotional...beautiful blessings were given him...the strength to overcome what lies ahead for him, it was not by chance that he was born at this particular time, the unconditional love of the Saviour was pronounced upon him, the remembrance of his namesake Siu was also many wonderful blessings were wrought...and I will jot them down in my personal journal for him to read one day....I'm just so thankful to have the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life as well as my family's life and my testimony has been strengthened once again on this beautiful Sabbath Day... What a blessing it is to have the proper Priesthood Authority again on this earth to perform the necessary ordinances pertaining to the Kingdom of God...The After-Party is always a FUN time with close family and friends...and all I have to say is that we ate good today....thanks to all those that helped with the yummy food...and to Lei and Liz that provided our dessert....Guava cake and Strawberry/Vanilla Trifle and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip bars...I was fed Spiritually and Physically...May you all have a blessed night...God lives is my testimony to you all....Goodnite...Always, Katharine
