We would like to share the following Christmas message with our friends and loved ones. It is taken from the First Presidency Message in the Friend. December 1972.
“When Jesus was born on that holy night long ago, our Heavenly Father’s love was showered upon the people of the earth. He sent His greatest of all gifts, His Only Begotten and Beloved Son, so that we all may someday return to our heavenly home. The best way we can show our love for Him is to live His teachings and to obey His commandments, for He said, ‘If ye love me, keep my commandments.’
At this special time of year may you feel the joy of Christmas, remembering Jesus as you see the lights of Christmas, as you sing the music of Christmas, and as you sense the hurry and busyness of Christmas. May love be mirrored in your hearts as you reach out and give of yourself with love to all those around you.”
We love you all and wish you a very Merry Christmas.
Love, Elder and Sister Shumway
