The City's Sanctuary

Today as I was strolling through Temple Square, I was once again struck with the beauty of the Temple and the surrounding grounds. It was a stunning day, with the bright sun, dazzling cloudless blue sky, a hint of autumn in the air, and blooming flowers, and I was overcome with gratitude and love for my Heavenly Father and all that He has given us: the world and it's beauties, the Gospel, and the Temple. While I was strolling through, I took a couple of deep, chi-cleansing breaths and instantly found peace and tranquility. What a wonderful place to come to sit and relax, and just meditate and ponder for a moment! Who needs a zen garden? In the middle of the city is the perfect spot to feel the Spirit of the Lord.
