Christmas is a time of gladness and rejoicing. Boys and girls throughout the world celebrate this holy season in many different ways, but Christmas everywhere is a special time to remember a Baby who was born long ago near the hills of Judea in the little town of Bethlehem.
Christmas is a time of loving. This love is expressed by the gifts we give to one another. In Scandinavian countries sheaves of grain are placed on tops of poles, in fields, and on barn roofs for the birds. Everywhere people’s hearts seem especially full of love for their friends and neighbors.
At this special time of year may you feel the joy of Christmas, remembering Jesus as you see the lights of Christmas, as you sing the music of Christmas, and as you sense the hurry and busyness of Christmas. May love be mirrored in your hearts as you reach out and give of yourself with love to all those around you.
May you truly feel the great love our Heavenly Father and His Son have for you, and also the love we have for you.
I love Christmas time and this month I am going to focus on our Savior, Jesus Christ - that is the greatest gift of all. I hope to be more loving and giving to those around us. We have been reading the New Testament every day as our Scripture study. I love the life of Jesus Christ and all he has done for us. I hope that you will enjoy this Christmas Season and join me in celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
