Joy, contentment, gratitude, testimony, direction, not to mention relief and healing from afflictions that come to all of us, are a direct result of us answering the call to serve .
I don't think it's always easy for us to choose happiness, but I DO think that we can try just a little harder to be just a little better about choosing to look for the good. It's out there. Heavenly Father wants us to be happy, and His gifts are in abundance. Especially this Christmas season, I challenge all of us to look at our lives with a softer lens and remember to choose gratitude, choose happiness, and choose love.
