Thanksgiving was truly the best. Wow. What more can I say?
About the 'He is the gift' video. On christmas.mormon.org there is a beautiful video about the true meaning of Christmas. The ultimate gift that God has given us is His Son, Jesus Christ. This video helps us to remember that and to also share this wonderful gift with others who can also feel of the Christmas Spirit. One of the best ways to discover the gift is by sharing it. I would invite you to share this video with others and remind them how much God loves them this Christmas season. Share your testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how you have been changed.
One scripture that I read goes along with this beautiful message 'He is the Gift'. "And thus the Lord caused stones to shine in darkness, to give light unto men, women, and children, that they might not cross the great waters in darkness." (Ether 6:3) it is because of the Savior that we are able to have light to help us get through the darkness of this world. He is the everlasting light and the Prince of Peace. If we only choose to come unto Him.
Come unto Christ. Invite others to come unto Christ. Increase your light through prayer, scripture study, family home evening, temple attendance. Share your light with others.
