I gave this to each of the sisters that I Visit Teach this month, because back in September, I gave each of them a pretty Black picture frame and told them that I would bring with me a printable for the season or holiday for that particular month. (Sept was fall, Oct was Halloween, Nov was Thanksgiving and now this month is Christmas) Each month I came, my ladies were excited to see the next image that they would put in the frame. Each had their frame displayed somewhere in their house, that as I entered, I could see it too, so I knew that it was appreciated.
This months image is of Jesus Christ. I made up a darling Santa, but when I created this one on Jesus Christ, with a beautiful image, surrounded by many of the names that he was known as and is referred to, this just captured my heart and instantly I knew that my sisters would not be getting a Santa image. Seeing this image, framed and displayed on my own kitchen counter inspires me and reminds me that my actions are a reflection on the Savior and when I do His will, I act in and honor His name.
This months lesson is more about being a good visiting teacher, and I think that another name for Jesus Christ..."The Good Shepherd" is a name that we should take upon ourselves, as we shepherd those sisters who need us. We can become as Jesus Christ by the things we do, the service we render, and the lives that we live, not to mention those lives we touch. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him.
Merry Christmas and much love to you from me. I give you this gift for the month of December, and offer that you too may pass it on to those sisters you teach or others that you may want to share it with. You have become my friends and my work I do is a service I give to my friends, in His name, to spread His good words to others. Love, Katie Gauger
