Temple is God's University

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentines weekend. Hope you all was able to think of all your loved ones & could tell them how much you love them. I'm telling you all now that I love you & appreciate all you do for me. I think how different my life would be without everyone of you. To my family you've made my life so wonderful I couldn't even begin to repay you for the love & help you've given me throughout my life. I do know I was not the easiest child to raise so I thank everyone for your patience. I'm still a work in progress but I've come a long ways. Most of all I thank my Savior for His patience with me & I'm thankful for the learning experiences throughout my life that's  helped me to get to know Him better it seems I'm a slow learner or a hands on kind of person so that takes a little more time. We've had stake conference this past weekend so I've had my cup filled a little more & enjoyed the talks. Today we're loading up my companion's stuff & tomorrow I will take her to Mesquite & bring my new companion back. She has her own car so she'll just follow me home. It reminds me of a song Putter used to sing "look what followed me home, I thought I was alone" it's so funny but just about everyday something reminds me of a song, he or we used to sing, I'm so thankful for them memories. Last night my companion & I was listening to music which we always do just before prayer I ask her to play "Why Me Lord?" which is the song that Danny told me a couple of weeks before he died was his new song. We played it at the cemetery & I remember looking up at the sky & seeing one lone vulture flying high above the trees, it brought a smile to my face & a few more memories of days gone by. Thanks Putter for all the great memories you left behind with me & lots of other people. Sorry I'm rambling but it doesn't matter to me. My new companion is from Canada so it's fun to learn new things. I've truly loved Sister Horsburgh & we've had some great times & she's taught me a lot in the scriptures so I thank her for that. Some nights when we'd get home we'd just sit in the car, watch the sky & all the airplanes  flying overhead & talk. I'm going to miss her but onward & upward I've learned each new companion teaches me something that I needed to learn. My thought for the week. "The temple is God's university" told to us by Elder Greer from the seventies who spoke at conference. He also told us that he & his wife have read the scriptures every night together for the past 12 years & how much it will help our marriages if we would do it. He's gone a lot from home but they will read together over the phone. He said it will strengthen your marriage more than anything else. My scripture Mark 8:35-36, have a great week I'm going to. Sister Putnam
