    Last week I took my children to a restaurant. 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 life.

    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

    THE END...
    Sometimes we all need
    some ice cream.

    I hope God sends you some Ice Cream today!

    That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
