On this, the Sunday before Christmas, I want to wish all of my friends and family a very Merry Christmas.
May you all have joy and laughter at this most wonderful time of the year.
I hope this Christmas season finds you in good health. I hope you are making the choice every day to live your life to the fullest, to choose happiness even when times are tough.
My Christmas wish is that everyone who reads this post will take a moment to reflect on what the Savior of the world means to them. Where is His place in your life? How will you let Him in?
I know that my Redeemer lives, that He loves me, and that it is His wish, always, for you to know Him and to feel of His great love for you.
Merry Christmas. xoxox
Don't you listen to the lie that we all have told ourselves at one time or another. The lie that everything has to be "perfect" or it is unacceptable. There has only ever been one perfect Christmas. It happened so long ago in the little town of Bethlehem when our Savior, Jesus Christ, was born. He was perfect and He has perfect love for each of us. Don't let visions of the "perfect Christmas" cloud your mind. Don't forget the real reason for the season. Don't forget to #sharethegift this Christmas season. The gift of perfect love.
"This Christmas, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive and enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love and then speak it again."
-President Howard W. Hunter (1907-95)
I am loving my second chance at life.
