We parked in the actual temple parking lot. We followed the signs to the Stake Center next door and watched the movie that explains the meanings of temples and why we build them.
The we headed back to the temple in a big line of families and old people and young couples on dates.
We walked through the tunnel of cute volunteers putting on plastic booties over our shoes. I wish I thougth to take a picture of Mirah’s feet in them. They were WAY too big. She loved then. She loved they the sound they made as she shuffled them on the floor.
So no pictures allowed in the temple. But here are the pics the church has released:
Then up another huge flight of stairs to the sealing room.
Mirah and I took a look in the eternity that we find in mirrors together. I could see her little face smiling forever.
We sat on the front row and a couple told us about the eternal families that we make in through covenants in these sacred rooms. The sister told us about her son who died at the age of four and the comfort that comes from the blessing of temple covenants.
We went into the temple visitors tent.
There were some cool close ups on the glass in the temple.
We stood in line and got an official pic from the temple.
We did get this shot too:
Then a few of little lady as we walked around the temple grounds.
Now a serious one.
Tyring to smile…and not really succeeding.
It really is a beautiful area. I liked Payson much more than I thought I would.
You can see Timp in the distance.
Feeling grateful for another house of the Lord coming to our area.
