Promises

Well I told you I would share some photos when they came.  So here we go.....

We will start off with the three of us getting ready for our Baptism.  Now you will see several of us in white.  It is Dear Hubby, myself and my BFF up front then behind us are the three special men who agreed to preform our baptism.  In the suits and ties are the three missionaries that have helped us so in learning and guiding us here the last 6 months.  We owe so much to these young men and are ever so thankful for all the time they have spent at our dining table.

Here you see the amazing support and love we have!  Yes you see 49 people in this photo.  All there to share with us and to help us in this new step in our lives.  It was amazing that so many was so willing to do so much to make this day perfect.  I do not even know how to thank them.   To have our family, friends and church all combined is the best feeling ever.


And another very bittersweet moment.  Today was our very last day with this Elder.  His last stop before he returned to pack his bags.  Tomorrow he will be on the very last leg of returning home and by Wednesday his mother will be so thrilled to have her son home again.  His two years mission trip will be over.  I love this young man.  I owe him so much.  If he had not shared where he had failed and how he had not been pure of heart I would never have listened to him.  But in doing that when he opened up his heart and told me what he knew, how he felt and the truths he has learned... I heard him.  My soul knew he spoke of something I had prayed for.  And in that I had to search deeply within myself to see if I was strong enough and brave enough to reach out for what was being offered to me.  I know of no way to thank him for sharing his heart with us.  But he took a good portion of mine home with him.
