Many years ago a group of saints were traveling on their way to the LDS colonies in Mexico. Deep in Arizona or northern Mexico they found themselves camped on Christmas Eve outside a small town. With little resources to use and only their wagons and tents, it promised to be a bleak Christmas for the little children. Little Siphronia Rosetta Norton (Scott) was only 4 years old at the time and had no toys to help pass the time on the long hard trail. As her mother listened to her prayers, her heart was broken, for the little girl was asking in her prayer for only one little doll for her Christmas. She had not money to buy anything and besides the lamps were glimmering in the town on Christmas eve. It was too late even if she did have the money. Off to bed to her sad and fitful sleep.

In the town, a woman there was looking out the window of her home at the group of people camped out there on Christmas Eve. She went out to see what and who they were in such a lonely place on Christmas Eve. As she approached the nearest tent, she overheard little Siphronia's prayer. Filled with compassion, she hurried home and found a beautiful little doll and later returned to leave it on the little girl's bed.

The faith generated in Siphronia that night helped carry her through an eventful life as one of the pioneers of the Mexican Colonies. Let us all remember that most prayers are answered by the promptings of the spirit to each of us. Let us always listen for that still small voice that we may assist in the answering of someone's prayer.

I learned this tender story in the mid sixties when I delivered the eulogy of Sister Scott in Casper, Wyoming.
