December 24, 2020 - Remember why CHRISTmas

As Christmas approaches, I realize that some may have concerns and anxiety about the future. There may be a lot of “noise” in your life, more or less constant engagement online without downtime, without time to be quiet and reflect and think, without time to look inside and discern where you are and where you should be going. You may be influenced by unrealistic expectations, such as “perfection should be immediate” or “uninterrupted happiness and success should be the norm in life.”
I hope you will lay aside these misconceptions, dial down the “noise,” and take some time this Christmas season, at least an hour, if not more—to reflect on “the wonder and the majesty of … the Son of God.” Let it be an hour of reassurance and renewal for you.

Elder D. Todd Christofferson, "Why We Need Jesus Christ", Liahona, December 2020

It's a wonderful habit to get into....making time out of the day to think, to ponder, to reflect, to meditate, to count blessings, etc., refreshes and renews my spirit, my commitment, my day, and my life. But... I don't do it often enough. Why don't I? If it provides a much needed skip to my step, or giddy to my up, then why wouldn't I do it more frequently?

As we get near to the celebration of the birth of Jesus tomorrow, I will try to take time to reflect on His importance to me and my life, to me individually and personally. I implore you to take some time amidst the craziness of presents and parties and loved ones, to just reflect on why we celebrate this time in the first place.

As we look towards a, hopefully, awesome 2021, we need that renewal and refreshment as we commit to a better us. What better way, than to take time each day to ponder and focus.
