Dear Friend K,
You will be happy to hear that I am feeling much better. Reading one article every day about the Atonement of Jesus Christ has helped to put everything in perspective.
I have been so blessed in my life. I always have been and I know that I always will be. That is just how Heavenly Father works. He wants to bless us.
I am feeling very happy today and full of hope. I am excited for the Christmas Season as I realize that it is to celebrate the Atonement. I have been thinking of how I can help others and have decided that better than any "Secret Santa" gift or charitable giving is the gift of helping others understand the Atonement. Husband and I are making plans on how to put this into practice for the next 8 days and I will keep you posted. You know I will :)
I have had Joy to the World running through my head a lot the past few days, especially the verses that say "Rejoice, Rejoice". There is so much to rejoice in.
