A Christmas Message

Each Sunday from now until the Sunday after Christmas, I want to share with you quotes, music, etc to help remind all of us the true meaning of Christmas.  This week's quote comes from a talk given by Gordon B. Hinckley back in 1983.  I am sharing only a portion of the talk here, but there is a link to read the entire message.

"He whose birth we commemorate this season is more than the symbol of a holiday. He is the Son of God, the Creator of the earth, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, the fulfillment of the Law of Moses, the Redeemer of mankind, the King of Kings, the Prince of Peace. . . .
" 'And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!
" 'For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father--
" 'That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God.' (D&C 76:22-24)."
"This is our testimony to all mankind. It is our gift and blessing to the world. He is our joy and our salvation, and we will find Christmas of greater meaning in our own lives as we share these truths with others.

Thank you for taking a few moments to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

New CT - Kiki Halbert

I was on the CT for 4 Shades of Blue, but she retired as of December 1st. :O(  So, I decided I had time to add another creative team.  I am now a member of the blog team for Kiki Halbert Designs.  I am excited to be part of the team.

Kiki sells at two stores, Funky Playground Designs (under the name Recherche by KH Designs) and Scrapbook Elements.  You will find links to both stores on the sidebar.

I recently did a layout for Funky Playground Designs using Masks He's Wearing and Grass Stains by Recherche.

(Also uses Every Day Alpha and Waves by Michelle Batton.  The fonts is DJB Boy v Girl by Darcy Baldwin.  Photo by Happy Astorga)

I am excited to be a part of Kiki's team.  You can see my first blog post for Kiki here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I truly hope to be more faithful in updating my blog..
