Temple Groundbreaking Ceremony

Today my mom and I went to the Provo City Center temple groundbreaking ceremony.  It was really awesome to be apart of a temple groundbreaking ceremony let alone the new Provo temple.  There is so much history there.  Elder Holland spoke and gave the dedicatory prayer.  He is one of my favorite apostles.  Can you have a favorite?  Is that allowed?

A few different speakers spoke about how the destruction and rebuilding of the tabernacle was symbolic of our lives.  We sometimes experience things that are devastating in our lives, but God always uses those experiences to make us far better than we could otherwise be.  It was a great meeting.
