His young daughter asked him, “Dad, do you think God heard the grace today?” “Of course,” he answered confidently. Then she asked, “And do you think God heard what you said about the coffee, the cheese, and the bread?” Not so confidently, he answered, “Why, yes, I believe so.”

The little girl concluded, “Then which do you think God believed, Dad?”
