A Time For Change
The Christmas season is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I really enjoy the mood and atmosphere that comes with this special time. It seems to me that it makes a lot of people a little kinder and happier. For me it really helps to look for the good and focus on the joy that comes from this season. It is a time that I am able to truly see all that I have been blessed with in this life. I also see it as a good time to make changes for the better. I am able to reflect on the year that has come and gone to see what has happened to me. Most of the time I can look back to see some type of improvement but still a lot of room for change. It is a good time for me to evaluate how I can become better now and in the coming year. The Christmas season gives me a renewed motivation to more fully repent by becoming like the Savior. He was the ultimate example for us all and wants us to be like Him. I am very grateful for the opportunity that I have along with others to make changes for the better. I know that God can help us to make those changes as we express a sincere desire to follow His example. Joy comes as we do what the Lord has asked of us.
