Holiday Season



The past couple days if been trying to focus more on the true meaning of Christmas. It has always been one of my hopes that I won't have any Santa decorations in my home, but that I will fill it with Nativities. The story of the Saviors birth is such a tender one. I have always loved it. I am so thankful for those me that kept record and made it available to the world. It's my goal for this new year to read the New Testament.

I know that that Jesus is the Christ. That He is the true son of a mortal mother and our Heavenly Father. I know that His birth is a miracle and that it is the event prophesied of in the Old Testament. I know that He lead a perfect life as an example to us. I also know that through His atonement and death we will all be forgiven and saved. I know that though He died He still lives; that I will be able to join Him some day. I am so grateful for Him and for the sure witness I have received of the truthfulness of his Gospel.

hey there, i agree about the decorations. we have two beautiful nativities up, one of mary, joseph and jesus, the other is a little more modern but the individual pieces have scriptures written on them. i think as our kids get older we'll do a little nativity advent with them, put out a piece and night, and read the scriptures and discuss their part in the story. i say no to santas. we even have a linus tree ornament that recites the christmas story, it's adorable and really the meaning of the whole season.
