Praying in Blessings – This post reminds me of the time my daughter wished we had chopsticks to use at dinner sometimes.  We were going yard-sale-shopping that morning, and on impulse I prayed aloud with her, for chopstick.  Guess what we found at the very first yard sale?  Yep.  Six pairs, enough for our whole family at that time.
