here's the outside

Today Ambrose and I went inside. We moved silently room to room with members of our faith and other interested parties all pressing forward and driven by a feeling of serenity, and calm, and a soothing, direct whisper that I have missed in my life.

So much has happened personally while the temple has been closed for renovations that I feel like the temple and I can face each other after much refining and a few setbacks better than we ever were before.

Focused, changed, and ready to move forward.

After the open house I walked home hand-in-hand with Ambrose and whispered, "How did you feel inside the temple buddy? Was it pretty in there?"

"I felt happy even inside my bones," he admitted.

"Oh me too," I agreed. "Me too."
