(Almost) Silent Sunday: The Temple

I love Sundays because every Sunday is the Sabbath day -- a day set apart from the rest of the week to rest from worldly concerns (like work or school) and focus on the Lord. It doesn't always mean the day is literally silent, sometimes I am with not-so-quiet family or friends or sometimes I am serving or teaching, but somehow it always restores my spiritual batteries and prepares me for the week of work ahead.

Sundays are peaceful. So was the morning we went to the Sacramento temple to get married. The temple grounds feel like Sunday every day -- peaceful and always set apart from the concerns of the world. I found the following lil' beauties on my mom's computer. It's us in the parking lot the morning we got married before our marriage ceremony. They're just snapshots my mom took, but they definitely make me smile and help me feel a tiny bit of that peace I felt that morning.


P.S. Link up your own "silent sunday" at For the Love of Blogs.

Awww, you look so happy in those snapshots! Your mom did a great job at capturing such happy moments. I'm feeling pretty peaceful over here as well. I love Sundays, and I hope yours is going wonderfully. :)
