“My brothers and sisters, may the spirit of love which comes at Christmastime fill our homes and our lives and linger there long after the tree is down and the lights are put away for another year.”
Thomas S. Monson
As is the church’s.
And this brings the message to me every year. It wasn’t the best place to have a baby, even WITH extra bedding. Animals lived and did their business there. But our savior was born there. May have been cleaner than this one, but God reminds me every time I sweep of humility.
In the meantime, remember that every single day is a gift. I’m off to wake my family!
Have a blessed day and a Merry Christmas!
