Went through the (Atlanta)Temple at the Open House before re-dedication. What a
beautiful edifice! My wife and I (lawfully married for 23 years) are going to be
sealed there on April 21st 2011. We have been going to the LDS Church in Dalton,
Ga. since 1991 and are converts. She grew up in the Church of Christ and I grew
up "Southern" Baptist. After trying unsuccessfully to find a church we
both liked, we prayed for Heavenly Father to help us be where we should be and
not be mislead. (She was more fervent than I about that)Within a few days the
missionaries were at out door! My wife joined the church in 1992. However, I did
not become an "official" member until 2007. Slacker huh? Actually
there were some legal issues for the first 10 years, and then the "Word of
Wisdom" issue. In my case,tobacco. Now, Jolly Rancher candy and I are very
close friends :-)How blessed I am to have such a wonderful wife, the
mother of our 4 children, who continued to have faith in me even when I did not!
Finally, after 19 years, we are about to be sealed!
Will you need tickets for the open house. I think in Rexburg they were
required. But in Twin Falls you could walk in no problem. Did not need them.
We worked in the Atl Temple back in 2000, it's great to see the images of the
new building. The extra light inside will be great. It's a beautiful building!
Very happy to read that the work moves forward.
