The Christmas Sweater

Last night we went and saw The Christmas Sweater. It was a touching story about love, faith, family and forgiveness. It was also about facing the storms that we come across and having the strength to make it through to the other side. It also talked about how we may need a friend along the way. This may be a family member, a personal Savior, someone bigger than us or a friend. It expressed the redemption that every person can experience and the power of forgiveness. It also talked about the concept of time. We are not going to get more time, it is a fact. There are only 24 hours in a day. There are only 365 days in a year. However, we can live each of those hours, each of those days to the fullest. We can impact other peoples lives just by smiling or saying something nice. We need to be selfless and kind. We may be the person that is fighting the storm hoping to be victorious, or we may be the person on the other side, trying to help that person through the storm. No matter what position you are in, you need to find joy in the journey and live life to its fullest. Find out who you are and what you can give. Especially during this Holiday season. Enjoy every minute with your family. Find joy each day, rain or shine. Forgive everyone. Love, love, love.

p.s. I could go on, but maybe read the book and see what it means to you.

Sounds like a great book. I will have to pick it up.
I saw new moon tonight with Tyler and loved it. Glad you liked it too!
