Wednesday Wisdom

Since I missed last week I was planning to double up today, but then I just couldn't make up my mind.
I promise this series won't always be church-y things, but today it was necessary.

Tonight I'm going to the open house for the new Brigham City Temple.
(if you want to know more about temples and why we have them, go HERE)

Anyway. I absolutely love the temple.
So here are some bits of wisdom from church leaders about the beauty of these sacred buildings.
All the photos are mine (thank you, iPhone).

"I know your lives are busy. I know that you have much to do. 
But I make you a promise that if you will go to the house of the Lord, 
you will be blessed; life will be better for you."

—Gordon B. Hinckley 

"You are never lost when you can see the temple. 
The temple will provide direction for you 
and your family in a world filled with chaos.
 It is an eternal guidepost which will help you from 
getting lost in the 'mist of darkness.'"

—Gary E. Stevenson

"As we touch the temple and love the temple, our lives will reflect our faith.
As we go to the holy house, as we remember the covenants we make therein,
we will be able to bear every trial and overcome each temptation."

—Thomas S. Monson

“I plead with you to be worthy, to be steadfast, 
and to look forward with great anticipation to the day 
you will receive the ordinances and blessings of the temple."

—David A. Bednar 

"Everything that occurs in the temple is uplifting and ennobling. 
It speaks of life here and life beyond the grave. 
It speaks of the importance of the individual as a child of God. 
It speaks of the importance of the family and 
the eternity of the marriage relationship."

—Gordon B. Hinckley

"Prepare now for the temple, the mountain of the Lord. 
Never allow the goal of the temple to be out of your sight. 
Walk into His presence in purity and virtue, and receive His blessings.'"

—Elaine S. Dalton
