Two things I've really been studying in the gospel are Hope and Love. So when the Primary President gave this to me for Christmas I almost started crying. She thanked us for our love for the children in our Primary and for serving faithfully in our callings. She is an amazing woman and such a good example of faith and obedience to the Lord.
¶For aGod so bloved the cworld, that he dgave his eonly begotten fSon, that whosoever gbelieveth in him should not perish, but have heverlasting ilife."
And we can be a manifestation of Christ's love as we share that love with others through service, time, pray, positive thoughts, etc, even if I am not always so love-able myself. And so as I prepare for the new year I am feeling like my goals will be centered in this.
And for the record, I have no idea how I am even going to come up with a gift that means as much as the angel or snowman ...
