I remember visiting downtown Salt Lake when Jake and I got engaged (December 2000.) We went to the Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert with his family and walked around Temple Square afterward, looking at the lights and seeing the Nativity Scene by the Visitors' Center. I was in awe by Temple Square's beauty and the spirit I felt there. Now, living in Salt Lake almost 6 years, I've been to Temple Square quite a few times and although I'm still mesmerized by it's beauty, I feel I take it for granted. We really are so lucky to live only 10 minutes from Temple Square and I hope our children understand what a blessing it is to be able to visit whenever we want. We decided to take them downtown last week and the kids loved it. When we were walking around the Salt Lake temple grounds Emma looked up at the Angel Moroni statue and said "I see Jesus holding a telescope!" Jake and I were laughing pretty hard at that one. We went to the Visitors' Center and looked at all the paintings and then saw the huge statue of Christ. We had a great time and can't wait to go back again.
Merry & Bright
