Looks like ground-breaking for tree planting has commenced.
The Temple testifies of Christ. So does the beauty that surrounds His Holy House.
"Things which are in the heavens above, and things which are on the earth, and things which are in the earth, and things which are under the earth, both above and beneath: all things bear record of me."
Alma taught, "All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator."
I love the symbolism of using the testifying beauty of creation to enhance and landscape these sacred grounds, which will draw many to this Holy edifice.
