18 September 2012

I don't know where all the time has gone.  It has been almost a year since i have posted anything or even looked at any blogs.  Its crazy.
This summer has been full of wonderful activities.  In June one of Meridith's roommates got married in the Manti Temple.  It was a beautiful wedding.  Sherree was a beautiful bride. That first semester was so much fun for those girls.  When we left the reception in the garage across from the chapel was a 69 camero.  Little tender mercies.  How thankful I am for those. 

We were able to spend sometime with John and Natalie Arhets.  What wonderful friends they are, the spirit in their home is wonderful.  I am so thankful to know them.  They have now left for thier 2nd mission.  How lucky the people of Canada are, they are getting 2 wonderful missionaries. 

Kristen RIchardson got married in the Salt Lake Temple in August.  I was very blessed to be able to be there in the temple with her.  It was beautful, temple marrieges are so very important.  You start off knowing that you will be able to be together forever.  The covenants that you make with yoru spouse and with Heavenly Father are wonderful.

In Spetember we went to Disney World with Rachel and Haylee and Brett and Brittany and Calan and Reagan.  Rick and I are very fortunate to be able to spend so much time with our grandchildren.  We have a great time.  Exhausted when we came back, but tons of fun.

Rick and I are still serving in the singles ward.  I am amazed often at the testimonies of these young single adults.  The service that they give is amazing, the night shelter, Tarrant County food bank, they take a trip to Houston to make Peanut Butter.  Thats just a few things that they do.
