Day of rest. Went to church. Stayed for sacrament and Sunday school. Went home after the first two meetings so that Sarah could attend Relief Society. She was home with Julia, who had a fever. It was a fast Sunday. So the sacrament meeting consistent of testimonies. The lesson in Sunday school was appropriately on fasting.
Later at night I heard Jenny singing America The Beautiful in a beautiful voice. She was not performing, she was just singing because she felt so inclined. I thought : "We have a wonderful daughter!" Then I realized that we would not have had her had we chosen to have children by the standards of the world, and not by faith. She was born 18 months after Benjamin. We had a less comfortable life for the last 11 years since children started coming. But I cannot imagine which one of our children we would be willing to give up to have a more comfortable life.
