"Our life is what our thoughts make it. A man will find that as he alters his thoughts toward things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him." - James Allen

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Every day for the past six months we've listened to the same prayer - sometimes several times a day - from Johann, our 4-year-old son: "Dear heavenly Father, please send angels to watch over us in the storm. Please bless everyone. In Jesus' name, amen." Mealtime variations included "Please bless this food."
We couldn't help smiling, for it's been a dry six months, even for sunny Arizona, and just this past week while at church we got our first real rain in months, Johann ran outside to experience the downpour.
On the way home lightning flashed and thunder roared. I wondered, would Johann remember that his angel really would care for us? Johann's little voice interrupted my thoughts: "Mama, Mama, Jesus answered my prayer!" I turned to see his little face beaming as he said, "Mama, Jesus sent the storm!"
