I was able to get out and go to the temple today. It was a very welcome break to enter the calm of the temple and "slow down" for a moment. While there, I sat and watched for a bit as women entered and left the dressing room. I had a wonderful feeling come over me. As I watched these sisters of all ages and backgrounds whom I didn't know, the words of the Relief Society Declaration came to my mind: "We are women of faith, vision, virtue and charity ..." I felt a great sisterhood with them. I felt I belonged to something wonderful and there are great and wonderful women all over the world who believe and live as I do. I can't really describe it with words. It is such a comfort to know I am not alone living "in the world, but not of the world."

Some days I may only be crawling, but I will finish the course knowing the Lord is helping me along the way.
