July 28: Oquirrh Mountain Temple

Tracy and I drove down to Day Break for the the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house today. It is so different from the Draper Temple, but it is equally as breathtaking. I loved the star design on the windows, the murals on the walls of the endowment rooms, and the beautiful paintings all throughout the building. The most impressive thing; however, was the chandelier in the Celestial Room. I have never seen anything like it, I actually gasped when I saw it.

It's been an interesting year to have two temples open so close together, what a blessing! When you look out over the Salt Lake valley and see four temples, it makes you feel how important the temple is, or should be, in our lives.
