Christmas time is upon us!

Starting out, I hope you have all had a chance to watch the new video The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has put out. If not Here is the Link. It is an awesome one, and it only takes 2 minutes to watch it. It talks about Jesus Christ and how He was born to bring us the greatest gift of all.

Then this past Sunday, I had the opportunity to watch the First Presidency Christmas Devotional. It is awesome how President Uchtdorf had made an emphasis on how Christ is the light! When christ was coming into the world there was a night of light, to where the it seemed like the sun hadn't gone down. Then when Christ had left the earth, it was followed by 3 days of complete darkness, because when he left, he took His light with him. Then he returned and He brought His light with him. Since then, we have had the light every day, which to me means that Jesus Christ has not abandon us. He has stayed with us. He has always been there for us. He loves us and He cares for us. He is also there spiritually for us through the Atonement, which He gave to us as a gift. He gave us the light of being able to achieve exultation. I know my Savior lives. I know He loves me. I know He wants me to return to be with him. I know I can communicate with Him through Prayer. He will answer every prayer. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
