What shall we give?

Thirty two years ago I was blessed to have the opportunity to serve a mission for my church. I loved being a missionary. Being able to share my testimony of Christ was such a great experience for me, and even a greater experience to talk about Christ during the Christmas Season.
 I guess that is why I love Christmas so much...people seem to speak about Christ without hesitation, and everyone seems a bit more Christ like in their service and patience with others!
 I served in Salt Lake City, Utah and on Temple Square, and that too was an incredible experience. To hear the Tabernacle Choir in person was unbelievable. I can still remember what it felt like to hear them sing the Christmas songs that I love so much.
Here is a video that let's your hear the choir and also has a sweet Christmas message.
It makes me stop in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, and see what I would give the Christ child for Christmas this year.
Enjoy dear friends!

I LOVE this picture of Mary with Baby Jesus.  It really shows Mary as a REAL mom and Jesus as a REAL baby!  He's nibbling on her shoulder and she's huddling close to His little face.  BEAUTIFUL that God made Jesus in such a perfect authentic way as a child.
