The Reason Behind Christmas
Happy Sunday friends. On Friday night we held our ward Christmas party and it was really a beautiful evening. My friend Jessica was in charge of the program and she did such a lovely job, i realized i haven’t been as focused this year on the reason for the season as much as i should be and the program that was put on truly helped me feel the Spirit of Christ. I love the video below, its so cute and at the same time thought provoking. I have a friend whose family always has a special dinner they called “Christ’s birthday party” and they all give a gift to Him, a gift of themselves of how they are going to be better and improve themselves. I love this season of gift giving, baking, celebrating, getting together with friends and family but i know the reason behind Christmas is more than all of that, its the celebration of the birth of the Savior of the world, and for that i am truly grateful.
“We put Christ in Christmas when we give the gifts he wants us to give, ourselves.”
