Valentines Weekend, 2010, Lynley and I got up to a beautiful snowfall. It was just a few inches, but it blanketed the world with a clean new whiteness. We had decided to take a trip for the weekend, and the Raleigh North Carolina Temple was the perfect first start. We believe that a marriage sealed in our temples can last eternally, and since we had just been married 9 months earlier, visiting the temple was quite romantic for Valentines day.
The temple was especially beautiful later in the day when the sun came out and was sparkling off of the melting snow, and reflecting off the marble walls of the temple. So beautiful and peaceful.
This painting will be in our baby’s room to remind her of the eternal nature of families.
