If you don't know the song "Last Christmas" by WHAM, go repent now and listen to it. To turn it gospel (hello missionary life, EVERYTHING has a gospel tie) "Last Christmas I gave you my heart...but sadly that person gave it away....THIS CHRISTMAS I'll give it to someone SPECIAL." How about CHRIST?! who will always keep it safe;) Cheesy yet kind of 100% true so yeah:)
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
Was able to skype my favorite people in the world just a little bit ago and MY HEART IS SO HAPPY. #manyhappytearswereshed #noshame Please spend the best day with your family celebrating the best person who ever lived on this earth!!!
CHRISTmas when Christ was born multitudes of the hosts of heaven praised His name to the extent that the heavens were opened. Why? He was just a baby, He hadn't done anything yet. There were thousands on thousands of babies born that day. Why Him? Why THIS baby. In THIS corner of the world? Why would all the angles of heaven praise a newborn who couldn't do anything for himself yet? Well the fact is it didn't matter to them (us). OUR SAVIOR WAS BORN. He had yet to do what He was sent to do but we praised Him because WE KNEW HIM. We knew He lived up to His promises in the premortal world so why would this time be any different. Yes He had His agency, but WE KNEW HIM. We knew He would do nothing contrary to the Father's will. And so we sang. And He accomplished all He was sent here to do. Which gives us reason to sing again. Heaven will not be a quiet place so lets not be quiet in singing our praises to Him here!!!
Wishing you the merriest of Christmases with all the wonderful songs, crazy interpretive dance moves, family togetherness, gift giving, food eating, and sugar crashing....but don't forget CHRIST!!!
