I went to the temple for the first time on Saturday. I wanted to do a temple trip for Ben’s birthday (which was last Saturday) so we went.
It was wonderful. I don’t really even have the words to talk about it.
I just felt so happy and peaceful the whole time I was there and I know that the ordinances performed there are sacred and essential. While you’re in the temple your cares about the world outside just fade away. I’d always heard this, and already had a testimony of it from seeing the the Manhattan Temple from outside. Saturday’s trip really proved it to me. And the grin Ben had on his face the whole day is something I’ll never forget.
I just wish the temple wasn’t so far away. (It’s about a 2.5 hour drive and I don’t have a car.) I can’t wait to go again. I can’t wait until the Indianapolis Temple is built.
