Just email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get your prize out to you! Previous day winners I will be sending out your prizes either today or tomorrow. I want to WISH YOU ALL a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! As one of the Christmas gifts for my son each one of our family members wrote out their thoughts of the Savior. I won't share them all with you, but I will share the grandchildren's (so cute) and mine:
Tyler (4)- I love Jesus because he gave me my bones and skin. I’m thankful Jesus gave me my whole family. When I think about Jesus it makes me think about Christmas and that Jesus was born for His birthday.
Kylee (will be 3 the end of this month)- I love Jesus because he gave me a body so I can dance. When I think about Jesus I think of babies.
Nate (3)- I love Jesus because I want to. When I think about Jesus I think about heaven and being with grandpa. I’m thankful Jesus gave me my friends and family.
Me - How I LOVE my Savior. I know that I love Him because he first loved me. I feel that LOVE every day in my life and it makes EVERYTHING good. His atonement is the ultimate expression of that love. I have COMPLETE trust in the plan of happiness and KNOW with ALL SURETY that He is taking care of me. What a wonderful feeling that is to KNOW that no matter what happens Jesus Christ has me covered. He surrounds me with His love and takes care of me. I have no doubt of it and have felt it many, many, many times in my life. He paid the ultimate price for us all and will not let us down. This brings me such peace and joy in my life. I am so happy that you have this opportunity to share His message of LOVE to the world, that all may know that He LOVES them just as much as he loves me and that they can feel the wonder of this in their own lives.
I am taking a little blog break until after Christmas so I truly wish you ALL the merriest of Christmases and hope the peace of the season abides with you now and always! HUGS, Cheryl
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
