The morning of June 19 we visited the Temple Square in Salt Lake City. I have visited SLC on several occasions but this was my first visit to Temple Square. I have to say I loved it.
I ignored a sign that showed the way for visitors to enter Temple Square, and instead headed towards an entrance to the actual Temple. We were clearly in the wrong place, but that made it fun. All around us were people dressed like they were going to a wedding. A very conservative, stuffy, Republican wedding.
But more impressive was the garb of those working in the Temple. They were dressed all in white, and I am not joking when I tell you they looked like angels.
As for the people-dressed-like-they-were-going-to-a-wedding, they were going to a wedding. The day we visited there were 42 weddings on the schedule. We were told in the summer the Temple can host as many as 120 weddings in a single day.
After being shown to the proper entrance we visited the Tabernacle.
Next we toured the rest of the Square. Jessie did some genealogy searching and we generally had a great time. I had quite a feeling while I was there, and it made me not want to leave. The church members we encountered were so friendly and kind I just wanted to hug them and hold them and conversate with them all day. The feeling of love they give out is the kind of love I want to share with those I meet.
