The Palmyra Temple

Palmyra Temple
 We began the day yesterday with a session in the Palmyra Temple. The temple is built on property that was part of the original Smith farm and when you enter the temple there is a window in the foyer that looks out to the far side of the property where the Sacred Grove is. That view fills me with the most peaceful feeling. I wish I could send it on to all of you!

The other windows in the temple beautifully depict a grove with leaves made of beveled glass that glimmers in the light so that it looks like the breeze is blowing through the leaves. It is breath taking. After our temple session we did the afternoon shift on the Smith Farm and after that we saw the pageant again. It was a full day.

Each day we rotate through several stations on the farm and today I got to tell the story of the cooper shop again. It is my favorite station. We are keeping busy, but we are enjoying every minute of it.
