It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!!

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Bonham house! Since this is our first Christmas in our new owned house, we decided to go all out and really bring on all the Christmas decorations. I think it was a full success!! What do you think? I love this time of year so much..being able to spend quality time with friends, family, helps others, Christmas parties, Temple lights, all the good yummy food and so much more! Most importantly, Christmastime turns my heart more to my Savior to thank Him for all that He has done for me. Its a time of reflection, a time of celebration and a time of generosity.

I love this quote by Thomas S. Monson:

"As Christmas comes this year, let it be a time that lights the eyes of children and puts laughter on their lips. Let it be a time for lifting the lives of those who live in loneliness. Let it be a time for calling our families together, for feeling a nearness to those who are near to us and a nearness also to those who are absent. Let it be a time of prayers for peace and for the protection of those who are far from us. Let it be a time for re-examining ourselves and for dedicating our lives to those values that endure. Most of all, let it be a time to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds and the worship of the wise men."

What do you love most about Christmastime??
