Washington D. C. Temple

 Today we got to go to the Washington D. C. Temple.  It was a wonderful day.  The temple is truly beautiful inside and out.  It is huge and so white and lovely.  Inside there are beautiful paintings depicting Christ's life.  It is so peaceful there.  The drive there is about 2 hours long and there is a lot of traffic, but we even enjoyed the ride.  First of all the surrounding area is so beautiful and then the company was great.




 Standing in front and looking out.  The fountain is being remodeled so of course it wasn't on.


 This is the view from the Visitor's Center.






 
We sat in front of the Christus and listened to the message of Jesus Christ to the world in Russian.  It was very, very touching.  Somehow when you listen to His beautiful words in your own native tongue, it has a great impact.  He is really the Savior of all the world.  I love Him with all my heart and want to serve Him always.

Someday I hope to get a chance to go to that temple- I have been to quite a few out here in the western US- but I think it is neat to experience the different temples- each is unique- yet the same.

Hope it is cooling off for you.
