12 days TO Christmas

Yeah yeah I know the title is different but Chris and I are doing "12 days of Christmas" for the last 12 days until the big day. We are doing small acts of service throughout these 12 days to focus on others.
We have some ideas for the next few days, some we will just do small acts of kindness toward eachother or family or whoever.
Christmas story of the day: "A Bright Shining Star" by President Monson during the Christmas devo.

"There is no better time than now, this very Christmas season, for all of us to rededicate ourselves to the principles taught by Jesus the Christ. Let it be a time that lights the eyes of children and puts laughter on their lips. Let it be a time for lifting the lives of those who live in loneliness. Let it be a time for calling our families together, for feelings a closeness to those who are near to us and a closeness also to those who are absent.

Let it be a time of prayers for peace, for the preservation of free principles, and for the protection of those who are far from us. Let it be a time of peace because we have found peace in His teachings.

Most of all, let it be a time to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the Wise Men."
