The opening hymn was #5, High on the Mountain Top. Some words spoke to me. Verse four says this, speaking of the temple: For there we shall be taught, The law that will go forth, With truth and wisdom fraught, To govern all the earth. The meaning to me? Those who are endowed with power, that know the law will be those who govern the earth! I'm excited for the day when righteous men and women who know the law will govern.
One of the assistant to the matrons spoke. She got teary eyed about her son who didn't get married till he was 29 (Big eye roll there). Two of her daughters were married in that temple. It was a spiritual talk. I wish I could remember more.
|The entrance. New stained glass!|
One of the speakers talked about how in 1973 when Spencer W. Kimball was made prophet there was only 15 temples on the earth. When he passed away there was 36 more, Boise was one of those- # 27 I believe. Now there is 140.
The next speaker was Pres. Monson's Secretary for 42 years. She said that she is largely who she is because of him. He is caring, kind, serving, etc. I really appreciated her coming and sharing.
|The hall way.|
19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will afollow thee whithersoever thou goest.
