Miracle in the Ashes

Most of you have probably heard about the fire that has destroyed the historical Provo Tabernacle, but I felt it was something I wanted to post to remember for myself. I, like many others, loved this building for it's amazing architecture as well as for the memories created inside. The loss of this building has caused me to reflect on the emotions that were surely felt by those final pioneers leaving Nauvoo and turning to see that beautiful temple in flames.

I wanted to share this small miracle discovered when firefighters were finally able to enter the tabernacle. Click here to see the video.

I realize that life can be difficult: in moments when I feel like I'm standing alone among the ashes, if I pause and look around I would see that not all is lost. I am not alone. I will always be able to turn to my Savior and find his arms stretched wide offering peace and comfort.
