First Presidency Christmas Broadcast

What a wonderful evening we had last night. We sat around in the family room, tuned the internet to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional, and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful music by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the talks by President Monson and his counselors. I felt so blessed to have this officially begin our Christmas celebration. Then, after the broadcast was over, they played exerpts from our last General Conference in October. As I sat there and listened to the words of our beloved Apostles, I felt so blessed that the Lord has seen fit to send these men to help us, and that they let us know what He would have us do. We, ourselves, are in a quandry as to what path to take when Doran's job ends. We have received no guidance as yet, but it will come. However, there is no wondering what we should do in our spiritual lives. We have a living Prophet and Apostles who guide us. Reading their words, hearing their words...they say nothing but things that will make us better people: be kind to your neighbor, live within your means, be faithful, seek peace, create more love in your homes and families. Nothing everyone would not want. How blessed are we!
