Nativity Countdown #12
This nativity is a snow-globe, and as such, it's a perfect reminder of our need for repentance and baptism, and the Savior's example of that saving ordinance. I am so grateful that because of the Savior we can be washed clean and allowed to return to God's presence. A couple of weeks ago a ward member shared the thoughts (from a talk by Elder Christofferson) that the invitation to repent is a divine gift; the cost of repentance is swallowed up in the joy of forgiveness; and as we strive to change we should both abandon sin and commit to obey. I appreciated those reminders.
