Walking into the temple last night, I was greeted by Brother Spear. He checked my recommend and said, "Welcome Home!" How grateful my heart was to be in the temple last night. It give me such peace to be able to enter into the House of the Lord.
Two friends in my ward planned the trip and I asked if I could tag along. They were so sweet to let me go with them! I also called my mom to tell her I would be there. It was so good to see her for a few minutes. I also ran into my dear friend Jessie! We had a wonderful time being in the temple together.
I was reading in the Bible Dictionary last week about Temples. I love what it says:
"Temple. A temple is literally a house of the Lord, a holy sanctuary in which sacred ceremonies and ordinances of the gospel are performed by and for the living and also in behalf of the dead. A place where the Lord may come, it is the most holy of any place of worship on the earth. Only the home can compare with the temple in sacredness. "
