Deck the Halls

Last night for Family Home Evening we spent the night decorating the tree. Our new missionary, Elder Godfrey was quite intrigued by our collection of snowmen ornaments! We had a grand time and Elder Thomas, as usual, was able to find a gospel application for the event.

Since my role this year was mainly as "producer", it was a joy to watch everyone participating and having such a nice time, relating to each other and sharing in the joy of togetherness. Tom captured some video footage that he is going to put together in a piece and post here this week. It was nice to have him share this year as well and lend his talents to preserving some great family memories.

So the season is off and running. While the world around us is in a bit of turmoil and we too, are experiencing some of that chaos and uncertainty, we are at peace in knowing that our Heavenly Father will care for us and that our rest is in the atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ. May you all feel that peace in your homes and in your hearts.
