- Sometimes when I wonder exactly how I will accomplish that day's goal, an opportunity will present itself when least expected. I truly believe that the Lord will bless us with the opportunity to do good when we have righteous desires to follow Him.
- On some of the days, I feel like the goal is easy because it is something I already do and that makes me think of two things: 1-How great that I am already doing something right! 2-How can I do that thing better and with more humility?
- I am feeling the Spirit of the Christmas Season in a deeper way than ever before. More than anything, I have felt overwhelming feelings of gratitude for my Savior and for the blessings that I have been personally given. I know that He lives and I love Him and my loving Father in Heaven.
I have read a lot of blog posts lately about keeping Christ is Chrismas and ways to do it. That is very important to do. As you can see by the Nativities that I have only begun to post, we try to do that at our house. But, one of my favorite Christmas songs, that you may have heard Bing Crosby sing, is called "The Secret of Christmas" and it goes like this:
It's not the Christmas Card you've sent for years,
Not the joyful sound when sleighbells ring,
Nor the merry sound when children sing.
That little gift you send on Christmas Day
Will not bring back the friend you've turned away.
So may I suggest, the secret of Christmas
Is not the things you do at Christmas time,
But the Christmas things you do all year through."
In John 10:27 He said: " My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:"
And also, in John 7:17: "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself."
Another in John, 13:17: "If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them."
One last thought from the Book Of Mormon: Mosiah 4: 10 "...and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them."
