A World Without Healing

I thought a lot about what I might share today, after all, Christmas is this week :) I can hardly believe that it's so close. I'm excited to start some new traditions with The Captain and share some of my old ones with him. 

I thought about what I might share about the Savior's birth, with my sister in law giving birth to a little boy this last week, and my other sister in law due to give birth to another little man in a few weeks, the miracle of it all has really hit home for me. That people can even ever have babies is a miracle, with all the things that could go wrong.

I thought a lot about this video

A world without healing... That struck me so deeply. What would it be like if I could never heal, even partially, from all the pains that I've felt in my life? Physical, spiritual, emotional. I'm one of the most sensitive people I know, feeling hurt multiple times a day over small things, and if I could not heal from that... I honestly don't know where I would be. 

This Christmas season I am so grateful for a Savior, who heals me, whose miraculous birth has given hope to me and millions of others. I am grateful for Him, and grateful that he plays a daily role in my life. To say that I need him is far too inadequate. I am grateful for the gift of his life that was given and grateful that we have a whole season to try and share that gift with others, to give them a little of the joy that has been given to us. It is true, and that's about all I can say about it.

What does the Christmas season mean to you?
