I love the Christmas season. How perfect is it to have the most peaceful, uplifting and glorious holiday to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ during the darkest time of the year. Many times the only light I see is my Lord Jesus Christ during stormy and rough trials of my life. He is my lighthouse, my guide, and my teacher.
Christ is our creator of the earth and, throughout His mortal ministry, taught through parables. Putting this together and testing it out, I have come to realize that Christ, in so many ways, teaches us through His creations. It is a part of life to go through hardships and trying times, and our Savior understands every bit of what we go through. I have no doubt in my mind that He knew we’d face difficult times and to help us get through these, He placed spiritually uplifting things in our lives-people, sunrises, and warm blankets straight from the dryers. Through His tender mercies, throughout His mortal life and throughout mine, I find hope, peace and joy. I am eternally grateful for His love and mercy.
