Tis the Season to be peaceful!

I know I know! i have got the words all sorts of mixed up! But it has a meaning and a purpose just like every other missionary! 🙂

So we all know that this season can be jolly! Don’t we?  We get presents, Santa Clause is in every department store, food food and more food!!! What is there not to be jolly about right?  But where is the peace? When I picture the Saviors birth I don’t see people running around trying to find the perfect gift at the best price.  I picture this…

I picture a humble, peaceful, moment, where all you can focus on is the Savior.  I took this picture from mormon.org.  Go check it out! They have a great video! And it also shows more of what I feel that beautiful night would be like.  Full of peace.

Now is a good time to stop and think, “Is my heart full of peace?”  If not, turn to Him who was born on that night.

 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord

 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger….

 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth PEACE, good will toward men.– Luke 2: 10-12 &14

I love my Savior.  Yes it’s ok to do this…

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of PEACE. –Isaiah 9:6

I know that my Savior was born that so that we may return to live with God one day.  I know that he suffered everything for us.  I know that He loves us! He is there for us.  It’s true!
