So last Christmas I had a really hard time getting into the Christmas Spirit. Call me Scrooge if you wish, I would not mind because I know it is true. But, this year we started it all out on the right foot. Tonight, Brandon and I went to the First Presidency Devotional with some cute girls from my family. Brandon is such a good sport to escort 5 ladies downtown. If you have never been to an event at the conference center you must go. It is a beautiful building and the spirit there is unforgettable. But, tonights event was different. I have often contemplated what it would be like to be in the First Presidency. What a big job that would be. It is amazing as soon as the Presidency enters the room the visitors go silent and come to their feet. It got chills. How their words touched me this evening. The music, oh the music was beautiful. I remember when I was younger making fun of my Mom for making us listen to the MoTabs but tonight they were breathtaking. But, the thing that sticks out most in my mind is this quote "The most precious things are only seen with the heart." I have often loved things that I have seen with my eyes. How beautiful they are to the sight and then with time they become less important and I no longer desire to see them with my eyes. You can not see love you can not touch it. Although, your heart knows it is precious, recognizes it and encourages the rest of your emotions to follow. How amazing it is to have the ability to love others and to feel of their love in return. It is one of the things my heart sees and knows is precious. How blessed I am to be surrounded by such amazing people who I know are precious. Especially during this Christmas season I am so blessed.
