Oakland Temple

Nate and I took the girls to see the temple grounds a few weeks ago in preparation for my talk in sacrament meeting. It's really just beautiful there. Nate was wonderful and patient adding an extra hour to his watch because I missed the intended session by 3 minutes....oops.

I am happy to report that Nate and I had an uneventful arrival on the temple grounds other than a few extra security personnel. Recently at the end of our Sacrament Meeting, the bishop closed with an announcement that a demonstration was going to be held in our area. He reminded us that in the face of confrontation we are to remain calm and exchanges of words rarely brings about the ending we would like. Happily that too was all that came about.
