We were in Atlanta again today, for the DQ's pre-op appointment at the hospital. Her spinal fusion is next Wednesday and today made it all that more real.
They drew blood, and talked to her about what to expect.
Afterward, we had lunch and tried to decided what to do. I decided I'd like to drive by the Atlanta Temple. The LT wasn't thrilled because he thought we were dressed too casually, but I really wanted to check it out. I was feeling really emotional about the surgery and so I stuck my ground on it.
I was overwhelmed by such a feeling of peace the moment we pulled into the parking lot.
Instantly, the scripture from John 14:27 came into my mind:
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I knew I had made the right choice in coming to the temple, even if I couldn't go inside today.
I am so thankful for the love of my Heavely Father, and how much He wants us to be happy and feel His love.
