We have just wrapped up Christmas. The big day has come and gone. But let’s allow the beauty of the gift to remain. The Heart of Christmas was here, and the gifts He brought to us can remain in our hearts all year. The hope, love, joy, and peace that graced the world when Jesus entered it do not need to be packed up with the Christmas decorations. The Savior did not come for just one day of the year, He came for every day of the year. Take the Heart of Christmas into your heart and find life abundant—a life that is filled with love, joy, hope, and peace, even in the most difficult of times. As we come to the end of 2021, let’s wrap things up with beauty. Let’s wrap our hands around the hand that will never let us go.
