Don't be jealous.

They were suppose to be shampooing the carpet today and we were told not to come to the Barlow Center to work because we would get in the way. We did our regular schedule in the morning but Instead of stopping my scripture study I got involved in identifying principles in the scriptures.  I am on D&C 88.  I have color coded nine doctrines.  (The Godhead, Plan of Salvation, Family and marriage, Revelation/ prophets, Atonement, dispensation/ apostasy/restoration,   priesthood and priesthood keys, Covenants, and commandments.)

I decided to take the Godhead and start listing what I have learned about the Godhead and put it on a spread sheet.  I finally stopped at 12:00 because we had to leave to go to the temple.  Wow that was so much fun.  We did an endowment session and sealings because they are going to close the temple the first two weeks of January.  Then in September they are going to close it for 6 weeks.  That is going to be really hard for me.  It was never a problem having a temple close in Utah Valley you just go to another temple.  There is no way we can get to another temple so I guess we will have to try and make up the ordinances we would miss.  Maybe we can do some extractions.

After the temple we stopped for a couple of groceries and grabbed a quick hamburger and then the plan was we were to pick up the Elders and one of their investigators and take them back to the temple for musical show at the visitors center and then they were going to have a discussion.  We got to the address but we couldn't find the apartment building.  We called so they could give us some directions and they had forgotten to call us.  The investigator couldn't go and someone else had taken them to the temple so they didn't need us to give them a ride but they had forgotten to call.  It didn't hurt our feelings not to have to drive back to the temple.

I can't believe that I got to just study this morning uninterrupted. On the way home we got a telephone call that they didn't get the carpets shampooed on our floor and now we can't go in tomorrow.

  1. 18 months without a temple was a long time for us in Israel. Our choices were Bern Switzerland and eventually (long after we left) Rome, Italy.

  2. I hope those elders remember to call next time. That is a pain when you stick them in your schedule and plan around them, just to be forgotten.
