Lessons of Christmas Day

For four millennia, from the days of Father Adam, prophets declared to the world that there would be born a Savior, the Son of God.  They said:

Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel…

 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace…

And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God…

The virgin whom thou seest is the mother of the Son of God, after the manner of the flesh.  And it came to pass that I beheld that she was carried away in the Spirit; and after she had been carried away in the Spirit for the space of a time the angel spake unto me, saying: Look! And I looked and beheld the virgin again, bearing a child in her arms…

He is risen!  What glorious words.  Because of Him, we will all rise from the dead.  This life, and the time between death and resurrection is but a moment in eternity.  I rejoice that I will be reunited with those who have left this life, leaving me better for having known them, and missing them.  Among those is my sweet sister.  Just a few days ago, I stood at her grave, near the graves of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.  What joy it bring to me to know that I will see, and rejoice with each of them at a future time. With all whose witnesses have been recorded here, and the many others borne of Him, I testify that He lives!
