|“Overdoing it is
especially common this time of the year for many of us. The causes for
this might include too many Christmas activities to attend, too much to
eat, too much money spent, too many expectations, and too much tension.
Often our efforts at Christmastime result in our feeling stressed out,
wrung out, and worn out during a time we should feel the simple joys of
commemorating the birth of our Savior. Finding the real joy of Christmas
comes not in the hurrying and the scurrying to get more done, nor is it
found in the purchasing of gifts. We find real joy when we make the
Savior the focus of the season.”
-Thomas S. Monson

From www.ajokeaday.com - 12/03/18:
|A 4-year old son was eating an apple in the
back seat of the car, when he asked, "Daddy, why is my apple turning
"Because," his dad explained, "after you ate the skin off, the meat of the apple came into contact with the air, which caused it to oxidize, thus changing the molecular structure and turning it into a different color."
There was a long silence. Then the son asked softly, "Daddy, are you talking to me?"
