Day 70, March 11

A week ago Sunday, I was at my sister's house.  It was the first Sunday of the month, Fast and Testimony Meeting in the Mormon Church.  On these Sundays, those able abstain from food for a day.

My sister's six-year-old granddaughter Lily came to her and said, "Grandma, I know I'm not really old enough to fast, but I'm going to try to today."

My heart was touched and my faith strengthened by this example of faith.  Fasting is hard for me.  In short, I don't like to go without my meals.  Sometimes I make it, and sometimes I don't.  But that Sunday I knew I had to try as hard as this little child was trying.

Joy for today:  witnessing the faith of a child.
