Wednesday meanderings . . .















Dreams are funny things aren't they?   The last thing I was dreaming about this morning just prior to waking up was Todd in a Pink Bunny Suit.  He was waiting to be auctioned off in a slave auction for charity or something like that.    There is a big reunion back home this year for all the kids who used to hang out at the Community Centre in Greenwood, Nova Scotia, where I spent all of my teenage years, and somehow this auction had something to do with that.

Dreams are funny things.

I doubt I would ever get Todd to put on a Pink Bunny Suit.  Not even for charity . . .  well, maybe for charity.  I'm not even going home for the reunion.  I wonder what it all means??
















I was rubbing the leaves of our Scicilian Honey Garlic plants yesterday and they do smell faintly like garlic.   Apparently bees love them.   They are certainly very tall and really do stand out.  I wonder what other mysteries we will discover in the garden this year??   Todd doesn't remember at all what he planted and where.  It will be like opening a gift all the summer long!


















 We are off to the Temple today with our friends Tony and Tina.  It looks like it is going to be a fine day.  One of the greatest treasures and blessings of my faith is being able to go to the Temple.  In our Temple Todd and I were sealed to each other for Time and All Eternity, not just until Death do we Part.  It is a place where families can be sealed to each other for time and all eternity, a place where we participate in  holy ordinances and make sacred covenants.  A place where we can draw even closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  I love being there.  It is beautiful and brings peace into my heart.   To be in a place like this with someone I love is a very special feeling and experience.



When I am looking for  answers to  questions or problems I might be struggling with, I go to the Temple.  I know I will find the answers I need there.  In the temple I receive inspiration.  It is the pinnacle of my experience in the Gospel and in this life.    It is experiencing the atonement in action.   As I serve others in this way, I am reminded of the atonement of the Saviour . . . of the sacrifice He made in order that we might all be saved.  In the same way I am able to perform saving ordinances for my ancestors who were unable to do these things for themselves here on earth.  What better way to show our gratitude than by serving in the temple and doing for others what the Saviour has done for us.  The Temple helps me to be a better "me."  The Temple helps Todd and myself to be a better "us."

I love attending and serving in the Temple.  It is truly a haven from the World and a place where love and peace reside.

And with that I will love you and leave you as I am off to get ready.



Baking in The English Kitchen today  . . . . Mini Scone Foccaccia Breads.  Delicious.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.   I know I will.   Don't forget!

Marie I pray your day is filled with peace and joy.

I am about to go to bed. I have been a busy bee packing lunch and breakfast for tomorrow's six hour train ride. We have to leave home at six am. We will spend about three hours in Toowoomba before coming home, I am hoping that this day brings joy to William. As a young chef his hours are savage and sometimes his boss even splits his days off.

I would love to see Todd in such a place. What interesting dreams you have.

God bless.

This is a beautiful time of year and I love how each day brings something new in the garden to enjoy. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Thanks Sybil. We did have a lovely day although I do find the drive there and back horrendous. I am a horrible passenger and hate motorway travel. I hope you were able to get out and about. I know how you feel about leaving Masy as we feel the same about Mitzie! xoxo

Thanks Monique! xoxo

Thanks Suzan. It was a great day apart from the journey. We are home now and exhausted. Cheffing is not for lazy people for sure. They work very very hard. I hope you have a great time on your adventure tomorrow! xoxo

Thank you Pam. I hope your Wednesday is a good one too! xoxo

Glad you and Todd went to the temple Marie! I know how you dislike the ride there and back but you are brave to go anyway because you know it's so worth the trip. Hope you both felt much love and peace there. Wish I could have gone with you. xo

Marie Rayner said...

Oh Valerie, you know how stressful it is for me! lol I am always exhausted when we get home, but it's from the drive and nothing else! One day we will sit next to each other in the temple, of that I have no doubt! xoxo

Valerie H. said...

That will be so wonderful! A dream for me. :-) xoxo

Marie Rayner said...

The fulfillment of a dream for us both dear friend! xoxo
