A Couple of Christmas Thoughts

I am so thankful for the generosity of our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. I am continually amazed at their faithfulness and mercy so freely given to me in my life! Their love and forgiveness is the greatest gift I've ever known. I am indebted forever to Them.

I love these two quotes and desire to share them with you:

"He before whom a few gifts were laid in that lowly manger has spread so many gifts before us, thereby providing an unending Christmas. In fact, from Him for whom there was no room at the inn there comes to the faithful so many blessings 'that there shall not be room enough to receive [them]' (Malachi 3:10)"
- Elder Neal A. Maxwell

"God's gifts, unlike seasonal gifts, are eternal and imperishable, constituting a continuing Christmas which is never over! These infinite gifts are made possible by the 'infinite atonement'."
- Elder Neal A. Maxwell
