In one year the construction has gone from this...
The blessings of heaven invoked that day, have poured out upon this holy land.
The morning of the Groundbreaking, I picked up three stones, used to create a path to the top of the hill. I thought it would be a good idea to save these as mementoes of this sacred event for my three daughters, who were not able to attend.
They remind me that the Lord, is my Rock and that the temple is my "high tower and my refuge".
2 Samuel 22:2-3
It's been since the fall of 2008, that the building of the Kansas City Temple has been chronicled and shared on this humble blog. Today is a blessed day of reflection on the wondrous gifts given to us, especially the privilege and gift of having one of His Holy Houses being built in our midst.
Happy Groundbreaking Anniversary Temple Chasers!
"When we act in obedience and always remember Him, we are built on the rock of His gospel. We are blessed as we live His commandments."
Elder David B. Haight of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, "Remembering the Savior's Atonement," Ensign, Apri. 1988, 9.
May we all keep chasing and building upon His Rock.
