At a ward sacrament meeting one of the hymns that day was the beautiful “We thank thee O God for a prophet”. The song leader was a wonderful lady by the name of Sister Hope. Now Sister Hope had several children and was expecting another one at this time and appeared like she could have this child at just about any time. During the singing everything went about like usual except when she got to a certain part of the song the congregation broke out into unusual laughter. It was where the words were, “there is hope smiling brightly before us, for we know that deliverance is nigh”. Even though people move into and out of the ward, that part of the hymn will never be the same to the people present that day.
