I know that my Redeemer Lives!
Christmas is a time of reflection for me. A time to take stock, to try to set a better course, improve the things that are holding me back, give thanks for the things and people that have lifted me and supported me throughout the year, to allow myself to truly enjoy and love those that are around me. It is a time of Thanksgiving and Charity and Joy but none of this would be possible for me without the life, death and divine sacrifice of my beloved brother and Savior. He is the source of my Joy and Strength. He is the compass that leads me back to the home that I long for. I love him dearly in my very earthly finite way and I know that he not only knows me personally but loves me with a perfect love. How do I ever repay him for his constant care, support and patience with such a flawed soul? I have been carried through great challenges by my tender and merciful Savior. I have felt him in my life whenever I open the door for him to enter. He has never been farther away from me then a prayer. To all that read this, It is my testimony that He lives! I KNOW that Redeemer lives!
