Answered Prayer



It's a good thing that God answers our prayers with not always what we ask, but what is best for us.

Spiritual Sundays are hosted by gracious Ginger and charming Charlotte. To visit other participants, click here.

I like the saying, "Be Careful What you Wish For". I always tell my kids that because they often say, "I wish I didn't have to do homework, clean my room, ect".

I like peas darling, but that is probably too much for me. Thanks for the cute post and see you tomorrow!

Cute one, Sally... I always enjoy your Sunday 'funny'....

Reminded me of the story about my youngest son HATING peas. Like a good Mom, I would make him sit at the table for hours (it seemed) --when he was about five--- to eat only FIVE PEAS... He would gag and carry on like I was killing him... We went round and round over the veggies!!!! Oh--how I long for those days again since he is now almost 39... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

LOL. Hello, Most Smiling One! Oh, this was cute! Sometimes God does give us what we ask for and when we get it, we realize it's not what we want. I'm so glad God knows what best for me! Hope you're staying warm in your cold Florida weather! :)
Be a sweetie,

Sally, I kind of had one of those ah-ha moments with this post. It's odd, isn't it, that Jesus who loved us more than anyone could ever love anyone taught us to pray the Lord's prayer which states "THY WILL BE DONE." Sometimes I think we are so afraid of God that we don't trust Him, particularly when he says that He wants to give His children good gifts. He wants us to have His best, to give us bread and not stones. Anyhow, I'm just thinking about that today, and how maybe, just maybe, God wants us to step out and trust Him on this and open our hands up for the bread of Heaven instead of eating candy that will rot our teeth. ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)
