For weeks Silas would say the same prayer at bedtime every night. "Thank you for God and cars and may I please have Chick Hicks. Amen." And at dinner, "Thank you for God and cars and Chick".
I would often tell him the same thing "You will get Chick when the time is right".
Silas got the "Cars" movie for Christmas and has become a huge fan. He eats, sleeps and breathes cars. His dream is to grow up and drive cars...which I told him there is a pretty good chance of this happening even if it not a racecar...
So one day in Kmart we strolled through the toy section and there was Chick. I wasn't sure if I should get it because it wasn't Christmas or his birthday or any other special occasion so I called Mark to say I was in Kmart and before I could say anymore he said "Get Chick ". Okay that was clear enough. I too felt like it was on the Father's heart to bless Silas that day....to answer his prayer.
When I got to the check-out to pay, the cashier said I had earned credit from using my rewards card and the total was 99 cents. I felt like it was a gift from God for Silas!
