I love the video put out by the church about the true gift of Christmas and I think it’s a great reminder to all of us that Christ is the reason for the season and the reason to celebrate.
I am so grateful for the Gift of Christmas. Here are just a few of the gifts I have received in my life this past year because of “the Gift”
The Gift of Healing-I don’t think one ever heals completely from the loss of a loved one but I have experienced so much healing in the past year and have been able to come to a place where I am feeling joy again. I know that without Christ this would not have been possible.
The Gift of Peace and Joy-When I became pregnant again I wasn’t sure I would be able to feel joy in a pregnancy again, it felt like I would only feel anxiety, and at first I did feel a lot of anxiety and even resentment about being pregnant again. That quickly changed and now I feel so much joy and happiness with every wiggle and kick. I am grateful that Christ has allowed me to feel the happiness and joy that comes from expecting again despite my negative experience before.
The Gift of Forever Family-This year was really special as I got to attend the lds temple with my sister and and my future sister-in-law. I am so glad that the temple allows families to be sealed together forever!!
So grateful for the Gift this Christmas Season. What Gifts has Christ given you that you are thankful for!?!
