Chirstmas Countdown December 4th

1 Nephi 11:14-17, 20-23

14 And it came to pass that I saw the heavens open; and an angel came down and stood before me; and he said unto me: Nephi, what beholdest thou?
15 And I said unto him: A virgin, most beautiful and fair above all other virgins.
16 And he said unto me: Knowest thou the condescension of God?
17 And I said unto him: I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things.

20 And I looked and beheld the virgin again, bearing a child in her arms.
21 And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the Son of the Eternal Father! Knowest thou the meaning of the tree which thy father saw?
22 And I answered him, saying: Yea, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things.
23 And he spake unto me, saying: Yea, and the most joyous to the soul.

Christmas Countdown

Hi, Happy Holidays!

A few years ago I came up with a Christmas countdown that shared scriptures of the prophecies of Christ's birth.  I enjoyed doing it, and taking some time each day to think about the Savior, and to remember that God keeps his promises to us all was a good reminder for my poor, sometimes weak, soul.  I've decided to do it again this year.  I'm hoping to be able to find something for every day...you'll forgive me if I miss one or two along the way.  Here's todays scripture.

Isaiah 9:6-7: "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

'Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end..."

Hope you all have a blessed Christmas season.
You are loved.
