Happily Forever After

This past Thursday Adam and I were able to attend the marriage sealing of our wonderful friends and good neighbors the Lewis's. Morgan and Christi have been working toward getting their marriage sealed for the past 5 years. They are an amazing couple, who have been through a lot...and with hard work and faith in their Savior, they went to the Salt Lake temple last week, and we were able to see them sealed together forever. We are SO happy for them!! :)
[As Mormons, we believe that couples and families can be sealed together forever, in temples all around the world. Click here to learn more about temple marriages]
{ Here they are with their 4 sweet kids }
The sealer (man who performs the marriage/sealing) gave wonderful advice to the couple...it was all so beautiful, but a few parts really touched me. He said when you pray together, express gratitude to your Heavenly Father for each other. Showing love that way will create an unbreakable bond. And then he reminded them that service is the ultimate form of love. There will be ups and downs in marriage...follow Christ's example: when He was in His lowliest state, he never fought back or sought revenge. Instead He served and loved those around Him. Serve each other and your children...love will grow and joy will constantly increase in your home.

Being able to be at their touching sealing, and then watching the stunning royal wedding the next day, I was reminded how blessed I am to have found my Prince Charming. And speaking of the royal wedding...one of the sweetest parts was when the Bishop of London spoke...he said "Every wedding is a royal wedding for we are all subjects of the King of Creation." How true that is! My sweet Adam and I have started our fairy tale together. And I'm so grateful that the our sealing makes it possible for us to have our Happily FOREVER After!

Cute picture of you guys, you and Adam are so cute together!
We just had our sealing to our daughter a few weeks ago. It was amazing! I love the feeling of love and peace that surrounded me when sealed to my honey almost 5 years ago, and the same peaceful feeling being sealed to my children later. It's the best! Thanks for sharing the part about service, it is good advice!

What a beautiful post Haley! My favorite part is the last paragraph, and how you never fail to perfectly explain your amazing love for your Prince Charming. And I am loving the little tidbit you shared from the Bishop of London....what a wonderful and true quote! That's one to remember!!!!

I just wanted to thank you for being one of my very favorite friends...you are always so kind and positive and thoughtful with your words. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your sweet comment after the tornadoes. AND your awesome encouraging message on my guest post at Janette's....Haley you are truly a beautiful soul! I'm so thankful I know you!
