A Perfect Reminder, At a Perfect Time

Ever since Glenn Beck's book The Christmas Sweater came out (and then had to be re-printed because it was sold out every where) I have wanted to read it. I finally found a copy yesterday at Sam's Club and my mom bought it for me! I read it tonight and it is such a great book! It truly is the best gift, and it is something I will treasure! I've had a few books make an impact on my life but this one is definitely at the top. I'm not going to go into detail about the book, but if you do read it make sure you read every page, a lot of the time I never read the acknowledgement page or about the author but I did this time and I'm really glad I did, his acknowledgement page really made a deep impact, I think I really needed to be reminded of the amazing gift Christ gave to me and like Glenn says, I don't want to stand at his feet and look in His eyes and have Him say "is this the gift I gave you", that won't make much sense to you unless you've read the whole book. My number one fear in life is disappointing my parents, this book has changed that fear to second in line, my number one fear is seeing the look of disappointment on the Savior's face. I'm so glad I read this book and I will always cherish it. It is such a great reminder of what I should be doing in life and that the hard times is just a storm I'm passing through and I know that the Lord will always help when I ask.
