The Spirit of Christmas

Last night I attended and participated in our Relief Society's Christmas dinner and Program. We planned to have it as an intro to Christmas and help the women remember what Christmas is all about. My husband and I put together a slideshow presentation and the whole programs was a miracle. I know my heart was touched and the Holy Ghost filled me with love and a desire to share the joy of Christmas. I know that Jesus was born in Bethlehem and that he is the Son of God. He showed us the way that we can return and live with Him and our Father in Heaven. Because of Christ we have hope in a world of trouble. We have love for all mankind, even in a world of hate. We have happiness, even in the midst of despair. Through Christ all things are possible! That is just a little bit of the joy I feel in this season we celebrate Christmas.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come; let earth receive her King!

Here is the slideshow:

Very well done. You guys sure do slideshows great.

As I was watching, Lex came over and pointed out every "baby". I then looked at the other clips you have on youtube. Lex was so happy. He said "Hi David" and "Hi Becca!" and when the clips ended he asked me why "Dabid and Begga" went bye-bye. It was very touching to see him get so excited over his cousins.

Oh, that is so sweet! I wish we all could live closer together. Then we could get together and have our children really know each other.
