Sorry I honestly had no clue what to title this email & I am really pumped for Christmas! 😊

Anyway it was a low key kind of week. Sister Hill caught a bit of what I had sadly, so we spent most of our week nursing her back to health. 

We also were without a car for 2 and a half days. The bumper had to be replaced so we tried our best to stay productive. We were with the Tracy's Wednesday and Thursday and helped them out at their new house! 

But have no fear we actually got to see and teach people this week! We got to teach Angela( that lady we met a few weeks ago who saved us from all those dogs) and she had read the whole Restoration pamplet and so we went over it with her and she really enjoyed it! She said the sweetest prayer at the end of the lesson. We just love her so much!! ❤

We saw Emely this week too! She finally was feeling well enough and came to church yesterday! We are so happy with how far she has progressed! 

We weren't able to teach Collen this week, but we got to go support him in his Christmas play! We had fun, it was a cute little 5th grade play with lots of singing and dancing!

Spiritual Thought:
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas … perhaps … means a little bit more!"

Part of the purpose for telling the story of Christmas is to remind us that Christmas doesn't come from a store. Indeed, however delightful we feel about it, even as children, each year it "means a little bit more." And no matter how many times we read the biblical account of that evening in Bethlehem, we always come away with a thought—or two—we haven't had before.
But first and forever there was just a little family, without toys or trees or tinsel. With a baby—that's how Christmas began." 

This was from a BYU devo. in the 70's, by Elder Holland. But I loved this part of his talk, because these days Christmas is so commercialized. People don't often think of it's true meaning anymore. I am thankful of my knowlege of our Saviors humble birth. I am thankful for parents who still to this day remind us kids what the true meaning is about. Getting new gifts for Christmas is nice, but the best gift of all was the birth of Jesus Christ. ❤❤

I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season whereever you may be! Thank you for keeping up with me for this long! It really means alot when I get to hear from you! Love you all! Have a blessed week! 😊

Sending Love,
Sister Jacobsmeyer
