We love the opportunity the First Presidency has given us to be a part of the Christmas Initiative, “He is the Gift”. We have handed out many of these little cards that invite people to go to the website christmas.mormon.org to watch the video “He is the Gift”. We have had several wonderful conversations about it!
In Elder Russell M. Nelson’s words,”He is the Gift” focuses on God’s love for the world, made manifest in the first gift of Christmas, even the Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God’s sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the immeasurable love of God and our absolute need for a Savior. As we embrace the gift, we strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ and our desire to become more like Him. As we share the gift, we follow in the Master’s footsteps, who invited all to hear His message. May we find greater holiness in our own lives and share the gift with others this Christmas season.”
In our flat we have only a few Christmas decorations. One shared here is our small live Christmas tree standing in our deep window sill, with all homemade decorations in the theme of “He is the Gift”. ‘Hope you’re having a great Christmas season, remembering who is the true gift! Cheerio!
