the spirit of Christmas

Merry Christmas!

My heart is very full. I am so grateful for this time of year and for these pondering moments I have of my Savior. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that the Nativity story is true. Jesus Christ came and he will come again. He came for YOU and he came for me. It's so humbling to know that someone loves us so much that he died for us so that we might live and be able to walk again with God our loving Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ is our older brother, he is there for you. He lifts us up and carries us. He is constantly cheering you on and giving his hand for you to hold on to. He wants you to be H A P P Y and true happiness come from being like HIM. By helping those around us, smiling at the person walking by, giving someone a nice compliment, helping someone, supporting some one in a play or event, comforting those who stand in need of comfort, mourn with those that mourn, being there for someone and LAUGH together! Christmas is about being CHRIST-like. "Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others." I know that as we strive to be like Jesus Christ, we will find TRUE HAPPINESS. You do matter! You are loved! You do make a difference! Always remember that. Jesus has so much confidence in you and is with you every step of the way. Carry the spirit of Christmas with you ALWAYS and strive to be like HIM.
