He is the Reason for Every Season

It's done. 

The presents are unwrapped.  The parties are over.   The day is past.

But, the reason we celebrate Christmas is still here. 

I often feel blue the day after Christmas.  But not this year. 

This year I really felt close to my Savior as I celebrated His birth.  Maybe it had to with Christmas falling on a Sunday.  Maybe it is because I've tried, as a persona goal, to come closer to Him in my everyday life. Whatever the reason, I have felt a deep sense of gratitude and love for my Savior.

The celebration is over, but the spirit of love and gratitude for me remains.  

As I get back to the reality of life, work, school, chores, etc, I plan on keeping that spirit with me. 

The Christmas season is gone.  But, isn't Jesus Christ the reason for every season?  Don't we owe all we have to Him?

I know I do.

There are so many people in need of our kindness, our help, our understanding, our love, our forgiveness, ourselves. So, for me, the way I'm going to keep celebrating the reason for every season is through being His hands here, serving others, trying to be like him and learn of him. 

Below is a great video that was part of my inspiration to do just that. It's a Christmas video, but it applies to every season.  I hope you enjoy it.

  1. This has been such a tender Christmas for me. I've found myself again and again turning to the reason for his birth, the atonement. He was born to overcome death and sin, so we could live again with God. Pretty awesome every day of the year.
