sabbath in the garden

This past sabbath we spent the afternoon in the Garden of Gethsemane. Sounds unreal, doesn't it? The actual location of the garden is unknown, but the Church of All Nations is built on the Mount of Olives where the oldest olive trees in Jerusalem are located. The peace there is indescribable. We walked home through the Mount of Olives and the Orson Hyde Memorial Park, where I had one of those "be still and know that I am God" moments. What an incredible blessing it is to be here where the atonement took place.
