Last week, when I took my kids to a restaurant, my six-year-old son asked if he could say grace.
We bowed our head and he started, “God is good. God is great. Thank you for the food and I would thank you even more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Justice and Liberty for all! Amen!”
All the other customers were laughing and I heard a woman said, “That’s what’s wrong with this country. Kids today don’t even know how to pray. Asking God for ice-cream! Why I never!”
My son started to cry and asked me, “Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?”
I held him and said that he did a great job and God was certainly not mad at him. Then an elderly gentleman approached the table, winked at my son, and said:
“I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer.”
“Really?” my son asked.
The man said, “Cross my heart.”
He said in a theatrical whisper by indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing, “Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. Sometimes, a little ice cream is good for the soul.”
At the end of the meal, I bought ice cream for my kids. My little son stared at the ice cream and did something I would never forget in my lifetime.
Without a word, he picked up his sundae and walked over and placed it in front of that woman. He told her with a big smile, “Here, this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes, and my soul is good already.”
It’s not a true story, it’s funny, so I just had to share it here.
Hope this funny story will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
God Answered (Inspiring Story)
A woman was at work when she received a phone call saying her daughter was suffering from a fever. She left her work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication for her daughter.
When returning to her car she found she had locked her keys in the car. She was in a hurry to go home with her sick daughter, she did not know what to do. She called her home and told the baby sitter what had happened and she did not know what to do.
The babysitter told her that her daughter was getting worse and worse. She said, “You might find a coat hanger and use that to open the door.”
The woman looked around and found an old rusty coat hanger that had been thrown down on the ground possibly by someone else who at some time or other had locked their keys in their car.
Then she looked at the hanger and said, “I do not know how to use it.” So she bowed her head and asked God to send her some help. In the next five minutes, an old rusty car pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head. The woman thought, “Great God. This is what you sent to help me????”
But she was desperate, so she was also very thankful. The man got out of his car and asked her if he could help. She said, “Yes, my daughter is very sick, I stopped to get her some medication and I locked my keys in my car, I must get home to her. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car.”
He said, “SURE.” He walked over to the car, and in less than one minute the car was opened. She hugged the man and through her tears, she said, ”THANK YOU SO MUCH… You are a very nice man.”
The man replied, “Lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour.”
The woman hugged the man again and with sobbing tears cried out loud….. “THANK YOU, GOD, FOR SENDING ME A PROFESSIONAL!”
