Christmas Thoughts

And God Remembered……

Last year I went to the play “Camelot” there is one scene where Arthur & Merlin are looking over the valley as Guinevere and her court arrived to Camelot - Arthur was frustrated & upset that his Kingdom was so happy to meet Guinevere he said to Merlin “Don’t they know who I am?” to which Merlin replied “It is YOU that have forgotten who you are”.

Sometimes in our busy lives we forget who we are!

In the bible we read about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When Jacob was the appropriate age, his parents sent him to the household of Laban, where he would meet Laban’s two daughters, Leah and Rachel. Jacob told Laban, “I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter. … And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; Laban tricked young Jacob into first marrying Leah and then Rachel. Leah bore Reuben, then Simeon, then Levi, and Judah. Meanwhile, Rachel remained childless - With ever-increasing envy and mounting desperation, one day Rachel explosively demanded of Jacob, “Give me children, or else I die” - Leah subsequently bore two more sons and a daughter.

In this age of one-hour dry cleaning and one-minute fast-food franchises, it may at times seem to us as though a loving Heavenly Father has misplaced our precious promises or He has put them on hold or filed them under the wrong name. Such were the feelings of Rachel. But with the passage of time, we encounter four of the most beautiful words in holy writ:

“And God remembered Rachel”

And just as God remembered Rachel, God will remember you.
- Claim the Exceeding Great and Precious Promises Elder Spencer J. Condie

We are all faced with unique challenges this year, some have lost material items, some have lost jobs, and others have pains we cannot understand! The important thing is that we all have a loving Heavenly Father that loves us and

May Heaven's Blessings be upon you & your Family this Christmas Season and may we all remember the reason for the season.

The Children have Changed.....The reason we celebrate has remained the SAME.........
