A Holy Place
Much has been said and circulated about an upcoming HBO "big Love" episode that will supposedly picture some of our LDS temple ceremonies.
I take a moment to express how I feel about the Temple.
Temples are a Holy Place. They are a refuge from the business and sorrow of everyday. They are a place of peace where all who enter can feel the spirit of God.
There was a point in my life when I attended the temple every Thursday. It kept me from being overwhelmed with being separated from my husband. It brought me closer to God. It gave me more purpose and more peace.
I love Temples. They are an important part of my life and of my personal worship.
I am grateful I am able to attend whenever I decide.
I am grateful I can enter the House of the Lord, feel his peace and his love among the quiet reverence that reside there.
Here is a little video explaining the purpose of temples.
