Brad and I love Christmas lights.
There is something almost magical about them and they really help me get into the spirit of Christmas.
Two weeks ago, we went to the lighting at Riverwoods and it was so beautiful. They had live music, a visit from Santa, and roaming elves. We even enjoyed a free carriage ride!
Last week, after a wonderful Thanksgiving trip to Idaho, we stopped in Salt Lake City on our way home to see the lights on Temple Square. Brad had never seen them before and it was so much fun to experience that together! If you are in the Salt Lake area, we definitely recommend a visit.
We met up with my cousin Ashley and her husband Phil and had a great time spending the evening together and basking in the beauty of Christmas.
As I look at these beautiful lights, I am reminded of number of things. Mostly of the light of the star that proclaimed the birth of the Christ child. I love Jesus Christ and am so grateful for all that He did for me and for each one of us. Christmas lights remind me to seek out the Savior, just as the wise men sought Him out by following that Christmas Star. As Christmas draws near, I hope we can remember Him and seek His light and love. Then may we share that light and love with others, as He would have us do.
