We went to see the Temple lights last night for Family Home Evening and they were beautiful. It was even kind of cold, so I'm starting to feel like it's Christmastime. We saw the nativity displays they have from around the world, which are awesome. We also saw the Christus presentation. There were quite a few people there last night and we had to wait to see the presentation, but Cooper wouldn't go home until we saw Jesus. :) I'm not sure if that was my favorite part of the night or when we walked by a young missionary talking to this woman about our Prophet. He was so excited as he explained to her that we have a living Prophet here on this earth today. His enthusiasm and sweet spirit made me smile. How great would it be if everyone had that attitude about the gospel? It reminded me of how lucky I am to have the gospel in my life.
When we got to the Temple, I'll admit I wasn't in the best mood. Hudson was crying, Cooper kept running off and getting lost and people kept bumping into me. One kid in a stroller even shouted at me to "Move!" Seriously.
By the time we left though, I felt peaceful and happy. Much more in the Christmas Spirit than when we arrived. The Temple is such a blessing and I am so grateful for it.
