Christmas Elves

christmas-elvesLast night some Christmas elves stopped by our house.

They left a basket of Christmas goodies.  This thoughtful gift warmed our hearts and stirred my soul.

Being remembered is such a nice thing.  Though we don’t always think about it, it does fulfill a basic human need we all have.  We all have the need to be loved, and this was a sweet, simple way for “elves” to demonstrate that to us.

They left a card denoting themselves as the young men and young women (of our Church).

With this kind act, our elves fulfilled another basic need – to give service and show love for others.

They were following Jesus Christ, the great Example to all mankind, who taught us in word and deed the true path to happiness and everlasting life.

And the really great news is, “elves” such as these are going about doing good and serving others all over the world.  Many of our young people are leading good and honorable lives, striving to live our Father in Heaven’s great Plan of Happiness by sharing what they know and showing love for others.

You don’t hear about these “elves” very often, especially not in the news.  But they are out there, quietly and relentlessly serving God one person, family, or community at a time.

What Christmas Elves are you aware of?  🙂
