Our Special Day!

On April 9, 2011 we had the opportunity to get sealed to our little family in the Newport Beach Temple. It was by far the most amazing and beautiful experience. It was a long and hard road to get to this point but it was worth it. Zeeky and I have grown so close throughout our marriage and this brought us together even more. Being able to be sealed to him and know that we are eternal companions made everything seem so minuscule . All of our stresses, worries and cares of the world seemed so small. I think the thing that made this day even more special was when our little Jack was able to be sealed to us. I couldn't help but cry and be overwhelmed by the Spirit. To know that this little boy was our responsibility to uplift him, teach him in the ways of the Lord and to continue to teach him right from wrong, good from evil. My heart hurt a little bit because my Hola wasn't there. I know the Lord has a plan for me and that includes our Hola. Sometimes it's a bit hard to not know what will be and it hurts my heart to know that I didn't make better choices so Hola has the blessing of being sealed to us as well. I know this road will be long and we will continue to have many trials but I do have faith that all will be well. I have faith that the Lord knows what he's doing and in the end, our Hola will receive the blessings of eternal life. My job now is to continue to teach him the truth, to continue to bare my testimony to him of the truthfulness of this gospel. Knowing that we are an eternal family now I feel it is our responsibility and duty as parents to continue to teach our children. To continue to nurture, support and guide them so they will become great men. That they may always know who they are and where they come from and that they will always stand for truth and righteousness
It was truly an awesome day and we had a great luncheon to follow. Zeeky's parents really put in a lot of work to help make this day a very memorable and lovely day. We had such a small simple wedding that it was nice to celebrate and have friends and family there to share in our special day.
Here are some photos of our sealing. Hope you enjoy and that you have a wonderful week.
