I don't talk often of spiritual things on my blog because they're personal and sacred to me, but here is an experience I felt I needed to share. I was listening to the radio the other day and the d.j. said "Merry Christmas everyone. Let me repeat that: Merry Christmas!" It really hit me at that moment how few times I've actually heard those words this season. Even Christmas has become a politically incorrect word, and I find that our society is "tolerating" it less and less. How tragic! When I heard those words on the radio that day, Merry Christmas, I got chills. I'm so grateful for this magical season that we have been given by our Savior, and for the opportunity that we have to celebrate not only his birth, but his glorious life and infinite atonement. It makes me want to shout the words, Merry Christmas, over and over! Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope it is a sweet one for all of you.
