When we were kids, my younger sister, Johanna, would sometimes be asked to say grace over dinner. The first thing she did was to ask God to bless our meal. Once that formality was out of the way, she got down to what really mattered: Asking for candy.
The rest of her prayer went something like this:
“Please give us candy, and some more candy, and some more candy. Amen.”
Because when you’re a little kid, it’s all about the candy, right?
