Oquirrh Temple Open House

This morning we attended the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. What a fantastic experience for the whole family. None of us have ever been to a temple open house before (our lives were kinda complicated when the Draper open house was going on), so this was a new and exciting treat for us.

It is beautiful and peaceful, small, yet elegant. Our favorite rooms were the sealing rooms at the very end of the tour. "Somehow" in the congestion of the walkways, I took a wrong turn and bypassed the sealing rooms altogether. I couldn't hear Justin's urgent whisper, so obliviously continued on my merry way. By the time Justin caught up to me and we circled back to where we left the path, most of the rest of the people in our large group had already gone through and we were "coincidentally" ushered into a sealing room all to ourselves, just our family. It was very special indeed.

I am so thankful that the Lord loves us enough to afford us the merciful opportunity to be together with our families forever. "I love to see the temple... for the temple is a holy place, where we are sealed together. As a child of God, I've learned this truth: a family is forever." Heaven just wouldn't be very heavenly without my family.
