I work on the seventh floor of the Church Office Building in a little corner known as “intern alley.” No windows or fancy cubicles for the interns, but often as I am meandering through the office, I get a glimpse of this. . .
It takes me by surprise every time. This pic was taken last Thursday when it was insanely cold and drizzly all day, but the temple still looked strikingly beautiful under an overcast sky. (and if you look closely you can see a wedding party coming out of the temple, despite the rain and cold) Before the weather shifted so dramatically, I would always go outside and eat my lunch on a little bench facing the temple. I loved to look at all the flowers and people scurrying through temple square—especially the brides and grooms posing for their pictures. But even now that I am tucked away from the cold weather, I always awe at the peaceful feeling in the presence of the Salt Lake temple. It’s always there. It never changes. I feel lucky to be able to work so close to this temple every day—even if it’s only a glimpse from the office windows. I mean, how many people have an office view like that?
