It had continued to be warm and rainy today. Went out to Church this morning however, alone. Was amply repaid for going out in the storm The God of all the earth being with to own and to bless. Enjoyed the class meeting very much, every though it became my duty to lead part of the Class. Could only be induced to do this thing from a positive sense of duty. Feel such a natural unfitness for my lack of gifts indeed can only spend on God to strengthen my weakness.
