Day 97, April 6

"Come listen to a prophet's voice and hear the word of God ..."  So go the words of one of my favorite hymns.

Today and tomorrow, we have the opportunity to "to a prophet's voice and hear the words of God" through General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.   There, we can listen to President and Prophet Thomas S. Monson and to other authorities of the church.  There, we can hear what the Lord would tell His people today.

How remarkable is that?  And how wonderful that we can do it, via television, satellite, even the internet.  Many years ago, I remember my father traveling to Salt Lake City to attend General Conference.  Having it available on television was still in the future.  And being able to watch it on a computer (really?) was a not-yet-thought-of idea.

So, for today, I am grateful for the blessing of being able to "listen to a prophet's voice and hear the word of God."
