Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas. I love this time of year. I love the shopping and the surprises and the gift giving. The only thing that I could live with out is the traffic. Seriously where do all these people come from? Where are they the other 11 months out of the year.

Anyways today will be a busy day as I will begin preparations for Christmas breakfast. I then have our annual family Christmas party in Salt Lake and then right after we have a drive to Scipio. It should be great fun!

I love this season because so many of our thoughts are turned to the Lord. I wish that as a world we did this more often. When else can you hear songs praising his birth on the radio? I am so grateful that he was born, because that small act set in play a series of events that makes the plan of salvation possible. How grateful I am that we have a father in heaven that loves us enough to make such a great sacrifice, and that we have a big brother who was willing and worthy to do so. I know that he was triumphant over death and that he lives today. I also know that he knows me personally and he is my personal savior. He knows the struggles I have but more importantly he knows me well enough to know how to comfort me. He also knows when I am joyful and he rejoices with me. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have. I will be sure to take a moment this Christmas and thank my father in heaven for the blessings he has given me.
