Rexburg Temple Dedication



Today the Rexburg Temple was dedicated. It is now a working Temple. As you all know we have had ferocious weather here for weeks. This morning we woke up to heavy fog. So much fog that President Monson had to fly into Pocatello and be driven up here. This meant that the ceremony was over a half hour late starting. President Eyring was not able to come at all due to a fall that broke his ankle. And finally they announced that President Faust's wife died this morning. But today turned out to be the nicest day we have had this winter. Warm and sunny. We attended the first session at 9. Jeff then had to report to ER duty. So I got my camera and spent an hour just walking around the Temple taking pictures. It will be good for Rexburg to return to "normal". It is kind of like Christmas. It is all great but nice to have over and things back in order. It has been a very nice day. It is the first time I have been able to see a Prophet. He was very kind and took time to say something to the people as he passed them. All is well...all is well.

I so wish I could have been there. Amazing
pictures. I got 5x7 framed and put it in my entry way. I have gotten lots of comments about it. I would love to have another copy to frame for Eric's parents if possible.

I will send you a copy. They used that picture in the cultural celebration the night before the dedication. I have printed around 150-200 of them so far and given them away.. I have seen people frame it with the harvest scripture below it. Very nice.
