President Russell M. Nelson expressed appreciation to all those who participated in his week-long invitation to #GiveThanks in a social media post and email message released Sunday, November 29. His full message reads:
“On November 20, I offered a message and prayer of gratitude for the world and everyone in it. I am grateful and humbled that you would join in thanking God for His countless blessings to each of us.
I urge you to make expressing gratitude to God a part of your daily life. An attitude of gratitude gives us better perspective and more peace of mind and heart. I hope you will also continue to pray daily to our Heavenly Father. We are His children, and He loves us with the care of a tender parent.”
One way to continue to express gratitude during the Christmas season is through Christlike service, he added, with an invitation to #LighttheWorld “by loving and serving others, one by one.”
