“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begottenSon, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
“On this Christmas I send my love to every missionary, every man or woman in the military, every student, and every employee and traveler who won’t “be home for Christmas,” as the carol says. Keep your faith. Look for the good in your situation. Do something kind for someone. Seek Christ devoid of wrapping and tinsel. You will find that despite external circumstances, Christmas—like the kingdom of God—is “within you.”” – Jeffrey R. Holland
