The Spirit of "CHRIST"mas

Today i was reading this talk by my favorite President Henry B. Eyring, called "Home For Christmas." I came across a part that really struck me it reads:

"What all of us long for in our hearts, at Christmastime and always, is to feel bound together in love with the sweet assurance that it can last forever. This is the promise of eternal life, which God has called His greatest gift to His children (see D&C 14:7). That is made possible by the gifts to us of His Beloved Son: the Savior’s birth, Atonement, and Resurrection. It is through the Savior’s life and mission that we have the assurance that we can be together in love and live forever in families."

His talk was based on 4 main topics:
1. Longing for Eternal Love (D&C 14:7)
2. Finding the Promised Joy (Matt 6: 14-15)
3. Felling the Joy of Giving (Mosiah 4: 20-23 & Revelations 13:8)
4. Blessed with his light (Moroni 7: 16, D&C 81:5 & 3 Nephi 19:24-25)

I would encourage you all too read it if you have a little extra time on your hands this holiday season!! Or it'd be a great fhe lesson. Just go to lds.org or in the Dec. 2009 Ensign or Liahona to find it. Its a great talk.


(p.s. Also, just a side note...I am no longer a private blog. Didn't like it!)
