On Saturday, Adam and I wen on a double date with an old coworker and his wife. We went out to eat, then to the temple open house. The grounds look very different, though the temple itself (on the outside) looks the same. The inside is amazing! It used to be quite plain but no more!
The sun was setting so we walked around the grounds before taking the tour which turned out a good thing since the sun was long gone by the time we got out.
She had been to an open house before, in St. Louis, and was very impressed that time. But she didn't know that she was going to another one. She thought she was going to an Amish temple, which she wasn't so thrilled with because she had never heard anything of one. Plus, she was confused because Adam drives and worked with electronics which wasn't fitting of an Amish man. She was impressed with this one as well.
I was also really impressed. You can see why it was closed for almost 2 years. It really made me happy to have the knowledge of the gospel that I do have and motivated to do better to not take it for granted.
