PRAY OFTEN


I want to do a little participation here: If you LOVE chocolate, raise your hand. (Wait.) Now, before I go any further, look around at those whose hands are not raised--these are the heathen, non-chocolate-loving people!


Now, if you have your hand raised, and you have had some chocolate at least once in the 12 months, keep your hand up; if not, put your hand down. [Continue with "six months, one month, one week, one day, at breakfast." If any hands are left up...] These are the ones who REALLY love chocolate!


If I changed the question and asked, "Is there a person that you LOVE--husband, wife, mom, dad, kids, grandparents, grandkids?" And then I asked, "How often do you see that person--once a year, twice, once a month, once a week, once a day?" I realize that distance may hinder us from seeing some of the people we love as often. Or "How often do you talk to that person--once a year, twice, once a month, once a week, once a day?"


The truth is--when we LOVE someone, we want to SEE them, TALK to them, and LISTEN to them often!
