Speaking of ABC's, I have signed up for and accepted the Blogging from A to Z Challenge for this coming April. I will be posting daily Monday through Saturday on my Creation and Compassion blog, using the letters from A to Z to determine my topics. If you're interested in joining up, check it out here.
I'm grateful for parents who read to me. I'm grateful that I can read good books for relaxation and pleasure. I'm grateful that I can write, and blog, and read the blogs of others. I'm grateful for my education. But most of all, I am very thankful that I have access to the word of God. That I can read scripture and learn of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is a verse that "spoke" to me just this morning:
Yea, I know that God will give liberally to him that asketh. Yea, my God will give me, if I ask not amiss; therefore I will lift up my voice unto thee; yea, I will cry unto thee, my God, the rock of my righteousness. Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto thee, my rock and mine everlasting God. Amen.
2 Nephi 4:35
