last Saturday my wife and I were able to attend a Stake Temple Day at the Chicago Temple. As I met old friends and acquaintances and watched other people interacting before and after the session, I was struck with how positive and joyous the Temple environment is. I didn't have time to go -- there were a thousand other things I needed to do -- but during the 3-hour drive home I contemplated just how positive and uplifting the Temple is, and how interesting it was that I felt grateful to have gone, even though it pretty much "shot" a valuable Saturday. From my perspective, the Temple experience strengthens marriages, helps people better understand and live their lives, and frequently brings joy through this form of service. And it's a wonderful place to meet people. Truly, the Temple is a happening place.
