Who Shall Ascend?

"As we recall the commandment to stand in holy places, we should remember that beyond the temple, the most sacred and holy places in all the world should be our own dwelling places. Our homes should be committed and dedicated only to holy purposes. In our homes all of the security, the strengthening love, and the sympathetic understanding that we all so desperately need should be found.
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully” (Ps. 24:3–4). For “holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, for ever” (Ps. 93:5)."
President James E. Faust

I may not be able to be in His Holy house in Kansas City yet, but I can prepare now by making my home a Holy place. We need to rededicate our lives to Him for 2009.
Speaking of ascending...
If you go sit in the green chair, you'll be looking right at the temple lot. Best view in the house.

I think you are so right! We have tried in all of our prayers to invite the spirit...Sometimes we forget and you know It really makes a difference in our home!!

Have a Happy New Year!

I was amazed to see the chair still in place when we came to KC to have Christmas with the kids and grandkids. The wife pointed as we rounded the roundabout, "there's the chair!"

Blessings on ya in the new year!
