I Love Christmas! We all have holiday memories where we get to know our family, and our extended families, better <3 I have been putting down Christmas memories this season. Largely they are sketches of the people I remember from holiday events of gatherings. I love Christmas Art! I love Christmas cards that depict the nativity, and the whole story.... I collected Christmas cards that spoke to me. Some day those may turn up again. I am grateful for being able to scan and save pictures on my computer, now. I love Christmas Music! Christmas music has been a big influence in my life, and in my family life. It is something that has brought us together, in service. My family has a heritage of music. I mostly love Christmas because it is the celebration of the Good News the birth of Jesus brings! The point of Christmas is for us to choose to change our lives toward loving each other, as Christ did. Yes, if only we could transfer that Christmas Spirit of Goodwill to the rest of the year. :-D Alma 5:26 And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now? .... I hope you all have a wonder-full season of love with your families. And I hope that those feelings of love stay with you past the holidays, in your change of heart. It is the love that causes us to reach out to come to know our families more and more. Whether it's the research that helps us get to know them, and then love them; or it's the Love that leads us to search after our kindred dead...? It is the Love that turns our hearts to them. They are turning their hearts to us. We have that promise. The promise of the coming of Christ is that we have hope as the family of Christ to live again eternally with Him in LOVE.
