This song means even more today than it did some 42 years ago.
We were invited to have dinner last night at the mission home with President and Sister Tanner and the office Elders. Along with the fancy, Elder decorated cake they had this little surprise:
It is called a tarpaulin here. They come in all sizes, are relatively inexpensive and are created and used all the time here for special occasions. It was a fun way to celebrate a birthday. We still don't know why a unicorn.
After dinner they talked briefly about the scriptural basis for keeping a record and the difference between recording facts (like names and dates) and keeping histories (like recording personal experiences) and how both are important. We then had about 30 minutes to ask questions, which went way too quickly.
