I love Christmas lights. December days around here tend to be wet and dreary, and night falls all too soon. But then the lights shine out, bringing hope and cheer.
The little electric lights are just a reminder, a dim imitation of the Light of the World, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Just like them, we can imitate Him to bring more light into the dreary world around us.
Join me in trying to lift some burdens this month. Here you can find ideas to get you started. Then observe, serve, and share in the joy of Christmas!
I've been trying my hand at a different kind of composition, and I'm not alone. My son and I have each entered a piece to the yearly Sacred Sheet Music Competition at Free LDS Sheet Music. We both submitted arrangements of Christmas tunes. There are many beautiful entries. Check them out, and vote for all your favorites!
