Standards Night

Steven and I got to go to Standards Night with Sariah tonight.  (Miranda and Tallen got to be big kids and stay home for an hour and half.)  I can’t believe that she is in Young Women’s already!  What a bright young lady Sariah is!

President and Sister Nielson came to speak to us.  He spoke about the Temple and the sacred objects there.  He referred to the chandeliers that hang in the sealing rooms.  They are beautiful and huge.  Apparently the Temple is refurbished every twenty years with new furniture and such.  While they (Pres. and Sis. Neilson) served as Temple President and Matron in Taiwan, the temple was redone.  There was a man who was going to take that chandelier home but it did not suit his decor…so then the light was going to be thrown away, so Sister Nielson took it and took the crystals off and had a Chinese knot made to hold each one.  She presented a crystal to each of the women temple workers.  What a wonderful and spiritual gift to receive.  All the prayers that were said, all the beautiful couples sealed in the room where it hung.

The youth were reminded that they can remain pure and bright and be able to attend the temple for themselves and their ancestors
