Today was such a great day! I hope you had a good day as well. I was able to get a little done at home and then I picked up a friend and we went to the Oklahoma City Temple. What a sweet place that is. We have LDS temples all around the world and they are all beautiful. If you haven't had the chance to see one, I encourage you to find one near where you live and check it out. I love to see the temple!
Here are some pictures of the Salt Lake City Temple that I took while visiting there last Spring.
Let's go ahead and jump right in with today's reading. I enjoyed these chapters so much that I highlighted a bunch of verses. If there are any of you reading along with us online, please send me an e-mail and I will get you your own copy of the Book of Mormon. I love having my own to mark up and put notes in.
2 Nephi 26:33
"For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he ainviteth them ball to ccome unto him and partake of his goodness; and he ddeniethnone that come unto him, black and white, ebond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the fheathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile."
In Chapter 27 it talks about a book that will be the words of those who have slumbered. It is talking about the Book of Mormon! The book which you all are reading with me. Isn't that so cool!
"And it shall come to pass that the Lord God shall bring forth unto you the words of a book, and they shall be the words of them which have slumbered."
In Chapter 27 verse 23 we read…
"For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work not among the children of men save it be according to their faith."
What great hope that gives me. I know that God is unchanging and the promises He makes in the scriptures are true.
I want you all to know that families can be together eternally and forever. It is the plan of our Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ died so we can live again. My father passed away when I was 21. I know that I will see him again. Our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to be happy. He has a great plan of Happiness so that we can be together with our families forever. I want to share the following video. I know that it will touch quite a few of you who have gone through your own personal hardships. There is always HOPE and that is the hope that comes through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I will talk to you all tomorrow. Love you!
