The Payson, Utah LDS Temple. My friend Carrie and I attended the open house for this temple. Anyone who wants to see inside a temple can go through it during an open house before the temple is dedicated to the Lord.
Gounds covered with flowers.
The Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint temples all have Holiness to the Lord written on them. This one has hundreds of of stained glass windows outside and inside of the temple. It is unusual to see stained glass windows inside the middle of the building and a baptismal font on the main floor.

Can you believe it, we had snow on our mountain tops two days ago from two storms - very rare for July.
When I was very little, all the Grandmas that I knew all walked around this world,in ugly grandma shoes. You know the ones I speak of, those black clunky heeled kind? They just looked so very awful that it weighed upon my mind. For I knew when I grew old, I’d have to wear those shoes! I’d think of that, from time to time, it seemed like such bad news. Now, I never was a rebel! I wore saddle shoes to school. Next came ballerinas,then sandals, they were cool. Then came spikes with pointed toes, then platforms, very tall. As each new fashion came, I wore them, one and all. But
always in the distance,looming in my future, there, Was that awful pair of ugly shoes,the kind that Grandmas wear.
I eventually got married then I became a Mom. Our kids grew up and left, and
their children came along. I knew I was a Grandma and the time was drawing near when
those ugly, black, old lace-up shoes was what I’d have to wear! How would I do my gardening or take my morning hike? I couldn’t even think about how I would ride my bike. But fashions kept evolving, and one day I realized,that the shape of things to come was changing right before my eyes. For now when I go shopping what I see fills me with glee! In my jeans and Reeboks I’m as comfy as can be. And I look at all these teenage girls and there upon their feet,are
those clunky, black, old Grandma shoes, And they think they’re really neat!!!
This was given at a DUP Convention yesterday and it was so funny, I thought I'd share.
