Today, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, and invite you to follow this link to view a beautiful video in some quiet moments today. It is the new video for Shawna Edwards’ song “Do You Have Room?” and conveys a beautiful and simple message.
I have listened to this song many times since it was first shared here earlier this month, and I was prompted to make more time for the Savior during my days. Quiet time is rare in our house, with 3 very lively children (5 years old, 3 years and 18 months). Many mornings this month, I set my alarm for what felt like the middle of the night so I could have quiet time to read the scriptures, pray sincerely, and ponder different gospel concepts. Some mornings I was too tired from sleepless nights with restless children, and I’d turn off the alarm clock and instead wake with the first noises from a child. During those harried days, my to-do lists often ran long and were rarely finished, and when I would take a moment to decide which task to tackle next, I often heard the music to Shawna’s song in my head: Do you have room for the Savior? Do you seek Him anew? That was the cue for me to put aside the to-do list, give the children some blocks, and find a few quiet moments to spend time with the Savior.
I was rewarded this month as I worked harder to make a place for Jesus Christ, and was reminded that Jesus Christ always has, and always will have, room for me.
