Seeing Christmas Through New Eyes

Deiter F. Uchtdorf gave a beautiful talk at a Christmas devotional this year. You can click here to hear his talk, but I'm going to include the notes I took below as my gift to you this Christmas. He suggests 3 things to do this season to celebrate:

1. Rejoice in the birth of our Savior
  • When Christ was born the angels sang in heaven, the veil was parted, and all could hear the good tidings of great joy.
  • Wise men fell down and worshipped Him and gave gifts
  • Take TIME and REJOICE

2. Ponder His influence in our lives today

  • slow down and reconsider what matters most
  • Time of: remembrance, friendship, forgiveness
  • Time to: renew, recommit, obey His commandments

3. Look steadfastly for His coming

  • There is HOPE in His return
  • It will be a time of: peace, joy, and learning

Look for the good!

Merry Christmas!
