I've had this post for a long time but forgot to post it...oops!
I went there today! Dave and I went to the Dallas temple for the first time last Saturday. It really is a beautiful temple. We went as part of a family and friends temple day for our cousin Emily who has gone through some unthinkable things over the last year or two. It gives a whole different meaning to temple attendance when you go with a purpose and as part of a purpose. I felt such an emphasis on the eternal perspective and nature of the gospel, the temple, and the family.
