A few years ago when we were all praying for moisture, my granddaughter, Mallory, made us stop and think about what we had prayed for. We were driving home from a family gathering in Woodland when it started to snow. We were coming down Parleys Canyon in white-out conditions. The roads were snow-packed and hazardous. We were discussing and complaining how bad the drive was when my granddaughter spoke up and said, "It's my mom's fault." Surprised, we asked why it was her fault. She said, "When we were saying our prayers she asked for the lake effect."

We had to suppress a smile as we remembered we had prayed for this and we were very grateful for the snow that was falling as we slowly made our way down the canyon. — Linda Jordan, Sandy, Utah
