Decisions for Eternity

Last Friday, my mom graduated from BYU 
with a degree in American Studies.
It was a family filled weekend and a lovely tribute to our amazing mom!
Mom and I also re-created a photo taken of my Nana Aurora
in 1956 on her graduation day.
We went to the very same home in Provo and mom stood 
in front of the same wall- in the same pose even.
The house is totally overgrown with bushes and greenery 
and siding has since been added.
In fact, you can't really tell it's the same house--but it is!
Even the address numbers are the same!
I wanted to take this photo to always remember the 
two generations of amazing women in my life, and their great accomplishments.

 

Mom was asked to give the closing prayer at the ceremony.
She did a fabulous job, and her family in section J was so proud!

Teachings from RMN:
Decisions for Eternity, October 2013
With your body being such a vital part of God’s eternal plan, 
it is little wonder that the Apostle Paul described it as a “temple of God.”
 Each time you look in the mirror, see your body as your temple. 
That truth—refreshed gratefully each day—can positively
 influence your decisions about how you will care for your 
body and how you will use it. And those decisions will determine your destiny.
 How could this be? Because your body is the temple for your spirit.
