temple lights

The Mesa temple grounds is a sacred place to me. Because we lived so close when I was growing up, I would walk the beautiful grounds, visit the visitors center with family, sit under a tree next to my sister and read scriptures, or have important talks with a boy (you know, Eric). It is holy ground. There is a spirit of peace, clarity, and inspiration. Even if you can't go inside the temple, which is my favorite, being on the grounds is wonderful.

The temple grounds at christmas time are magical. Walking those sacred grounds with family or friends surrounded by christmas lights and beautiful nativity scenes fills you with the true meaning of christmas. I'm so glad we made it there one evening. I love sharing special places with my children.
