Awesome Happenings at the Temple

So, today was moving out day for me, but I made sure that I had basically everything ready when I went to bed last night.  Since I had time I woke up and went to the temple this morning (like I have been doing every Saturday since April 5th when I got out my own endowments) because I didn't have to check out until noon.

When I got to the temple, I saw my best friend's parents in the lobby of the temple.  (I wasn't too surprised to see them, because I had seen them yesterday helping her move out of her apartment, and I knew that they were staying the night in Logan.  I thought that maybe they just got up and went to the temple like I did for no special reason, but I thought it was neat that they were there.)  I greeted them, and they told me that they were her because her fiance was getting out his endowments today.  And because I was there at the temple I got to go through on his session with him.

It has been a month since I got out my endowments myself, and this session was really special for me in many ways.  It also very special that I got to go through the session as this good friend was going through for the first time.

I didn't know my friend was getting out his endowments today.  I know that they are getting married in a couple of weeks and that he was going to get his endowments out a couple of weeks before he got married, but I hadn't put those two facts together and made the connection.  He just kept it simple.  The only people at the temple with him were his parents and his fiance's parents.

But the most amazing thing about this is that I saw my best friend's parents as I was entering the temple.  If I hadn't have seen them and arrived precisely when I did I wouldn't have seen them, and I wouldn't have even know my friend was at the temple today.  If I had arrived at the temple 2 minutes earlier or 2 minutes later, then I never would have met them.  I would have gone on the 8:30 session, and never have seen them.  (He was attending the 9:00 session).  And we would have been like ships passing in the night.

There is no way that this could have been a coincidence.  This is one of God's tender mercies. God is so good to his children.  I feel so blessed and so loved.
