Day 427: Come, Listen To A Prophet's Voice

And hear the word of God.

That's a beautiful hymn I love to sing.

And it was very applicable this weekend, as we listened to General Conference.  It happens twice a year.  Several church leaders speak during four two-hour sessions.  The men get an extra two-hour session just for them on Saturday evening.  So, it's 8-10 hours of guidance, instruction, and manifestations of God's love.

I love it!

Sometimes it's frustrating because it's hard to keep the kids busy and focused for the entire time.  And sometimes I get distracted as well.  Thankfully, we get it printed in The Ensign magazine.  It's such a blessing to be able to read and review all that we've been taught.

The talks that I was able to listen to today and yesterday were wonderful.  As I mentioned yesterday, some felt very much directed to me and my needs.  There were several talks focusing on giving and serving abundantly.  I found that interesting since my theme for 2011 is Service.  It was all quite inspiring.

And spending the day at home with my family was a lovely Joyful Moment in and of itself.  Today was a really good day.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments on a really good day!

I felt the same feelings about GC - and what a privilege to know that a prophet of God is on the earth. I am so filled with gratitude for being able to listen to him and the apostles and receive such direct guidance for today.

A bishop from New York and his son came to visit us after GC. After dinner he surprised us with his ability to play the piano and sing old time songs, which he does as a service in rest homes in his area. And then your dad convinced Megan to sing while Weston played. JOY
