Last night a group of us went to Temple Square, walked around and enjoyed the lights as well as each other! We went to see the Joseph Smith movie after. Very moving. He was an amazing man, to be able to stay so strong through all of that! WOW! But most of all Emma!!! What an amazing woman! What amount of faith she had to have just from Joseph's word! Losing 5 children, and watching Joseph be tarred and feathered, moving from place to place... going through all of that, based on Joseph's word! Incredible amount of faith.
The temple was gorgeous of course. Every time I visit the temple it NEVER ceases to amaze me of its incredibility and its beauty! Every time I look at it, and go inside my heart grows for it more and more each time! There is NO doubt that when the pioneers built that temple that the Hand of God was in EVERY step of it. It is SO AMAZING!!!
There is a quote in the Joseph Smith movie that really stood out to me. It was while some of the persecutions that were going on towards Joseph and Joseph was wondering what to do, and Hyrum said something to Joseph that really struck me... He said, "Whatever happens, the Lord is in it."
Meaning that as long as we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, and following the Lord in all that we do, then everything WILL BE OK, IT WILL! And there is no need to fear because we are in the Hands of God!!! And he will take care of us! :)
