Mary kept these things and pondered them in her heart

With all that happened with the Birth of Christ, scripture concludes with the phrase "And Mary kept these things and pondered them in her heart." So important and sacred were the events of that night that Mary kept them inside, in awe of what had happened to her and this tiny baby.

May we similarly be in awe of the import of what happened that night. May we realize the import of the Son of God coming into the world.  May it affect us so much that we become kinder, serve others with more love, and become the hands of heaven on earth.  For in lifting and serving others, we serve the Savior. 

It is the best way to commemorate Christmas, that the Son of the Living God had come to earth, and would eventually offer salvation to all through his atonement.  To do for others what the Savior would do if he were here.  

If you do, you will feel a closeness to the Savior that is worth more than anything else in the world.

When Christ was born, the people in the American continent saw the star, and had another sign of his birth, a night of light, even though the sun had set. This was prophesied by prophets in the Americas. Read more by clicking here
