Temple Lights

Our family visited the LDS Temple in Mesa to see the Christmas light display.

When we arrived, we discovered that about 10,000 other people had the same idea. We literally had to stand in the flower beds to avoid getting trampled by the massive crowds. Someone fell and had to be carried out on a stretcher. People pushing baby carriages cursed and fought as they struggled just to pass one another. It was not a spiritual moment for me, to be sure.

We returned later in the evening when the crowds finally went home. That way we got to appreciate the beauty of the temple lights.
