I was able to volunteer in the Provo City Center Temple open house tonight, and serve in the wheel chair area — among other things, this allowed me to push a guest through the temple and enjoy the tour myself at the same time :)
Afterwards, I was privileged to participate in the “VIP” tour of parts of the temple, including a couple areas I’d likely never go otherwise (children’s waiting area for sealings and the bridal room).
And finally, I finished by helping with cleaning of the temple. I got to vacuum the chapel, a nice large carpet in the hall, and the carpet in the main entry way. Interestingly, I found myself vacuuming more thoroughly than I ever have in the past! We want to keep the temple clean, right?! While cleaning, I pondered on how my body is a temple as well :) and felt a desire (my HWN today) to keep myself as clean as I was currently trying to keep the temple!
p.s. Jenny opened her mission call today! :)
