I am so grateful for my Savior, and for all that He has done, and continues to do for me. I know that I do not deserve all of His love and blessings, but I am so grateful for them. As I ponder on the birth of Christ and try to imagine what Mary and Joseph must have felt that night, and as He grew, I wonder if they knew the sacrifice that He would eventually have to make. How hard that would be to think about. I also am brought to ponder on the Atonement and what part it plays in my life. I know that it is my choice to make it a part of my life every day, and I strive to do that. I do better at some times than others, of course, but that is part of life here on earth. I just need to keep doing my best, and I know that through Him I can receive Eternal Life. I know this because He loves us, and He would never make it impossible to live with Him forever. He wants it, too. “For with God nothing is impossible.” I am so grateful this Christmas for Christ, for His Gospel which has brought me so much peace and happiness, and for all of the blessings which He has blessed me with.
