Two nights ago I along with several other adult leaders took the teenage youth in our church up to Salt Lake City to see the lights on Temple Square.
At this time of year the whole area is filled with Christmas lights and is just beautiful. This is the Salt Lake temple. It doesn't matter what religion you are, what you believe in, this building is a gorgeous building. It took the pioneers 40 years to build. Because I was with the youth and trying to keep an eye on them I didn't have the time to take very many photos, especially ones in detail but if you'd like, you can go to this link to see more photos of this incredible building.
On the temple grounds not only do they have fantastic lights but they have displays set up around like this one, depicting the birth of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
Two great loves in one photo. My country which allows me the freedom to choose what religion I want to follow and this temple and what it represents. Marriage for time and for all eternity. Not till death do us part, but for all of eternity. Sealed to all of my loved ones.
Sorry the photos are so grainy. It is night obviously and I didn't want to use a flash.
Just a smidge of the lights. These photos really don't do them justice.
I didn't have time to play with my camera and get better shots. Guess you'll just have to go and see for yourself if you are able to!
More of the temple. The majority of my photos are of the temple. I kinda love the temple........
One of the little stink pots I was with. She wanted her photo taken right here! So I did!
