First Presidency Christmas message
At this joyous Christmas season men and women of faith turn their thoughts to our dear Savior who came forth from heaven to live on earth as a mortal man and to establish the kingdom of God. His glorious gospel reshaped the thinking of the world. He blessed the sick. He caused the lame to walk, the blind to see, the deaf to hear. He even raised the dead to life. To us He has said, "Come, follow me."
We testify of the living reality of Jesus Christ as the Savior of mankind. As we seek Christ and as we follow Him, we shall have the Christmas spirit, not for one fleeting day each year, but as a companion always.

I love this message from our first presidency! At times it seems like our lifes can be so difficult and so crazy. But in reality, it can be quite simple and easy. We just need to follow the perfect example of our Savior, and do as our prophets have told us and we can have a pretty nice life. I love this time of year. I love seeing manger seens, hearing Christmas songs, the smells of the season, and even Santa, who is the giver to others, just as the Lord gave to each of us, a Savior! Merry Christmas!

This is a great message! Thanks for sharing. And BTW, I LOVE my haircut! I've been meaning to tell Kristin and you, but I've been sooo blessedly busy that I haven't been on the computer since Friday. Will you tell her for me? Have a wonderful Sabbath Day.
