development – painting: bountiful temple 9×12

bountiful temple, 9×12 oil on wrapped canvas

This is the temple one of my bffs, Nancy, chose to be sealed.  It was a beautiful day.  The ceremony was jammed-packed with wise counsel, opportunities to learn and grow.  There were so many good nuggets offered, but one that remains cemented in my mind: every night as you kneel to plead with the Father, don’t merely plead for your children’s righteousness, health, or protection.  More importantly, ask the Father for the opportunity to mother and father more of his children.

No, this is not an announcement.  🙂  Though I have begun to feel baby hungry the past month or so.  And this, I’ve decided is not a bad thing.  It will happen, as it has with the others, when the time is right.  Till then, I wait in gratitude for the Father’s grace and knowledge that he knows best. 

xoxo to all of my prego friends, baby hungry friends (single or married).  I luv you!

  1. I love it! We were sealed in the Bountiful temple, too. It was a beautiful day. And I too, have the baby hunger a bit. But you knew that already. 🙂
