I was unable to get myself to do a 12 days of Christmas for the rest of our family.
One day on about the 16th or so of Christmas a tender mercy was given to me. Some one left a 12 days of Christmas present on my door step. It was so precious to me and such a testimony that God knew me personally and my needs this year. The Lord was very involved in the details of my life this year and I was so grateful. Each day as we would gather for family scripture study and open one of the presents I was as excited as the children not knowing what was inside. It was a joy to me!
“The Lord's tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ” (David A. Bednar, April 2005 general conference).
Read Elder Bednar’s April 2005 general conference address, “The Tender Mercies of the Lord,” to learn how we can invite and recognize the Lord’s tender mercies in our lives.
