We saw the DC Temple and the New York City Temple while we were away. Both were so beautiful, as every temple is. The DC Temple was enormous. When we came out it was night time and it was incredible lit up against the dark night sky.
There is nothing like the New York City Temple. It is a little piece of heaven right in the middle of the city. When we went we were stressing about what we should do with our lives for the next few months. The city was loud and chaotic and adding to our stress. It was the most wonderful and the most needed thing when we walked into the calm of the temple/church meeting house. We like to think that it was the peacefulness of being there, and then stayed with us that helped us know what we should do.
