My friend sent this to me and I want to share it with you.

My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace.

As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for
the food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for
dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman
remark, "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!"

Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is
God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was
certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.

He winked at my son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a
great prayer."

Really?" my son asked.

Cross my heart," the man replied.

Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark
had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A
little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My son stared
at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my

He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in
front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you.
Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my soul is good already."

The End

Sometimes, we all need some ice cream
I hope God sends you some Ice Cream today!

Amen! Right from the pure heart of a child.


Joh 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Amen to that little boy who has such a PURE heart and LOVE for God. Not only did that boy have the 'belief' in God to pray to Him.....but even more so he "gave unto others"... trying to touch that old womans soul... just like Jesus would want him to do!

That story is so cute. Grin

Romans 10:9  "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth thy Lord Jesus and believe in thy heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Jesus is our first, last and only hope.  Without Him we would be nothing.

Thanks! This was a great story that reminds me about my little grandsons praying. I love to hear them pray. The big one is 6 and the little one is almost 4. The blunt honesty of small children is many times very refreshing. BUT, there are also times that you might want to hide under the table.   Grin   I'm very proud of them nearly all of the time, and I'm happy that they are diligently being taught the things of the LORD.
