At this time of year, may we all be grateful for the Savior, whose work began long before his birth, and will extend into the eternities and beyond.
Never lose sight of the reason for the season. With all of the beauty that comes with the lights and tinsel and trees, may they all point us to the Savior of Mankind, the Redeemer of the World, to the King of King and Lord of Lords, who has ransomed us, and beckons all to "come unto him" and to "partake of eternal life," to live forever in the presence of God with our families. May we ever remember that, this season and always.
Christ is real. He lives. He is as real as the sun rising in the morning, and has the power to reach into the eternities, and yet comfort the tenderest soul. He is indeed, as President Monson has said, involved in the details of our lives. As President Eyring has said, one day we will stand before him, and it will be a time of joy for those who have lived their lives in his service. May we ever serve others, and serve the Savior.
