Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.Beattie, Melody
I found this quote in the comments area on another blog. Reading it overshadowed the post I was about to make, so I’ll save that other post for Monday. In my heart of hearts all I really want to do is to wish anyone who reads this, Merry Christmas.
I am so grateful for the birth of the Savior, so grateful for the life that he lived. When I think of him, I feel still inside. No matter what my personal storms may be, he is the only one who can calm them or calm me so that I can ride out those storms. Through the experiences of my life, I have come to know Jesus Christ, the living son of the living God, in ways that I had never imagined possible.
Whatever the circumstances in your life may be at this time, I still say to you Merry Christmas. There is one who has experienced every joy and every sorrow of mortal life, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of this world. I know that he is real; I know that he “turns what we have into enough, and more.”
