For most people the Holidays are a time of happiness and joy. Despite the lack of sunshine, the cold weather, and the other stresses which come with the Season, it is a time of warmth, giving, and love. On the left is a picture out of the front door of my families home in Colorado last winter. It is no coincidence that to start the Christmas season we have Thanksgiving. I have often heard testimony of others; as well in my own life how when we take time to count our blessings we are able to see how much the Lord has blessed us in our lives. I remember our Branch President shared a curious verse which illustrated this point in one of our meetings. This comes from the Old Testament with the Lord talking with Moses in the Tabernacle.
Exodus 33: 23 “And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.”
