The Boy Prayed

We went over to a friend’s house for dinner.  I love the people: they have joy and friendliness.  Nothing much bothers them.  And they have grandkids and a daughter that live with them.

So when it came time for dinner, I asked “Who wants to pray?”

And the 7 year old said he would pray.

He started out thanking God for food.  And friends.  And love.  And family. And he kept going, listing all the things that God had given and that he was thankful for.  And kept going. And going.

Finally, the Grandpa waited for a space in the listing and said AMEN.

Who knows how long the boy might have gone on, talking to God about all that He had supplied?  The boy was awed by all God had given.  And I was too. I still am.
