Blue Dots

The oxen are in place.
The new temple is almost complete.
It's come a long way
Tremendous work has gone into this transformation.
The process has taken a long time.
Many new features contribute to its beauty.
The tabernacle was a beautiful and much loved building.
However, it had a greater potential.
The transformation was forced upon it.
After that, we just had to watch and wait.
The temple is currently covered with blue dots.
These dots mark places which need attention.
With gentle care, the blemishes are made perfect.
I found myself thinking about this last Sunday.
Our baptism was followed by a baptism of fire.
Perhaps there are a few places in our lives which we could mark with blue dots.
We need to go after these dots like Pac-Man.
If we go after our blue dots,
We can be transformed.
We will be complete.
Whole.
Finished.
Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you?

I can remember this building from my early days in Provo. It is good to see the Church making good use of their old buildings. The change in the building is marvelous to see. Thank you for the wonderful pictures.
