Words can’t express how I feel when I look at these pictures.
All I know is that I love them.
And they make me feel closer to Him.
So if they ever come to where you live, go and visit them.
And invite your friends and neighbors to come with you.
p.s. I had no idea I wasn’t supposed to take pictures inside the exhibit until my husband told me afterward there was a big sign at the entrance that said, “No cameras.”
So, I emailed Mark Mabry (the incredibly talented photographer who took the exhibit pictures) and asked his permission to post my pictures on my blog and he very generously gave it. Thank you, Brother Mabry!!
p.p.s. My sincere apologies to those in the exhibit at the same time as my adorable Bubbers monster who ran around with great excitement, singing “Itsy-Bitsy Spider” to my friend, ring-leading her kids into a wild goose chase, and giving high-fives to the Elder missionaries. Alas, the removal of his loud sandals and the temptation of silence-inducing animal crackers did not slow him down one bit!
But before the silly goose in him came out, I could tell he was touched by the Spirit of the exhibit and pictures of our Savior. And afterward, he sat on my lap and attentively watched the entire slide show and documentary video in the chapel, so it was definitely worth the times of craziness to give us this experience.
(And when it comes back to our Stake, I will schedule two visits: one with kids and one without). :)
