“A Joyful Season,” Friend, Dec. 2005, 2
Christmas is a wonderful time of year. It is a time to celebrate not only the Savior’s birth but also His life and example. He showed us how to live and find happiness whatever our circumstances. He is the Son of the Eternal Father.
As we follow Him and reach out as He did—serving family and loved ones, seeking out those who are sick or hungry or cold or friendless—the joyful spirit of Christmas will enter our hearts. Then this Christmas, and every Christmas to follow, will be filled with hope and love.
