I am grateful for the Christmas season. I like giving and getting presents to be sure, and I like the lights and decorations. I think they're wonderful. I am especially grateful for what the Christmas season is about; the birth of Jesus Christ, and what he brought to the world. I once heard the saying describing Christ's birth and mortal life this way: "A divine being made himself mortal, so that mortals could become divine." I think that's aptly put. Here is a video produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) about the birth of our Savior: https://www.mormon.org/christmas
Jesus made it possible to have hope, even when things look tough.
