love this

My new favorite temple picture. I bought this months ago because I fell in love with this picture. I had to get it and have it in my home. It was a Christmas gift to myself that I have been waiting to put up.
It reminds me of the joy I felt when our family reunited for General Conference and how the heartache of missing my children was worth it because they have all grown so much. I'm so grateful for the temple covenants that I've made and the joy I have being a mother.
It's true, I feel it, we are all bound together. How joyous the reunion will be when we are all reunited with our loved ones again. Having a child who has already passed on, I know that reunion will make our family complete and that will be truly joyful.

Very touching post. We so need the temple in our lives. For Those of us who look forward to the Resurrection for our family and loved ones--it holds the promises we love.
Beautiful Lisa.

I have to agree with May - That is a great gift to get yourself! A beautiful Temple picture in the home is so uplifting :D

The temple picture is beautiful!! I can see why you had to have it in your home.

We are indeed blessed. It will be quite a day when I get to scoop up my cute little baby, and kiss those sweet cheeks! So glad to know that we're forever!
Have a great day!

I love how you express what I too am feeling. And what a beautiful picture!!

How are you doing with your kids back in school. My oldest daughter was here for the wedding and funeral so it was fun to have her around. This week has sure been quiet though.

And how funny that your daughter knows Riki. Small world.
