We just spent a wonderful hour in, or I should say, at (or maybe on) YouTube. There is some marvelous stuff there!
We heard about a special upload that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently put on YouTube, and thought we’d check it out. But, how to find it?
Beloved hubby suggested putting “LDS Church” into the search box, which we did. The third result was the one we’d heard about and so we watched it. It was done so beautifully and movingly. When it ended a pleasant sight greeted my eyes!
Every suggestion of what to watch next was from the Church, and there was some great stuff to choose from! We selected one about all worthy male members being able to have the priesthood, then a video about missionaries, another about the daily life of missionaries in the Mission Training Center, one or two more, then one about the temples of the Church.
What a beautiful video that one was! It explained how the temples are different than our regular meetinghouses, explained why only those who are devote members are allowed to enter, why we go there (though before they are dedicated all people are allowed to go through and see them), and showed the great beauty of these buildings both inside and out!
It left me feeling in awe and grateful, even though I’ve been in the temple hundreds (at least) of times. Of course, that is exactly why I love going to the temple!
It was an absolutely wonderful hour. Even now I am still basking in the warm glow and soft, reverent emotions evoked by this very special hour. I also feel closer to Beloved hubby having watched the pictures of brides and grooms being married in the beautiful, sacred temples all over the world and remembering my own marriage in the Salt Lake Temple many :) years ago.
What a great way to spend an hour! :)
