Wednesday’s Wisdom

Though David was only 4 years old, he often asked the blessing before family meals, and this year he was asked to return thanks before Thanksgiving dinner. The family members bowed their heads in expectation. He began his prayer, thanking God for all his friends, naming them one by one. Then he thanked God for Mommy, Daddy, Brother, Sister, Grandma, Grandpa, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the food.

He gave thanks for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, the cakes, even the Cool Whip.

Then he paused, and everyone waited—and waited.

After a long silence, the little David looked up at his mother and asked, “If I thank God for the broccoli, won’t He know I’m lying?”

Have an amazing Thanksgiving everyone!
