Chance and Luck

One of the things I have always wondered about, is how do you know if something is chance, luck, or answer to prayer.

Pres. Thomas S. Monson answered this so very clearly in Conference this last Sunday.  A few quotes from his talk included “was it chance that our paths crossed . . . I do not for one moment believe so . . .I believe it was an answer to . . . prayer” and  “The Lord is in the details of our lives.”  “Like many other things in our lives, it seemed to be something that just worked out.”  “Luck, I don’t think so.”  If you have an extra 20 minutes, the entire talk can be watched below.  To listen to just the final story you can start at about 15 minutes in.
