One of the most effective ways of sharing the feeling of God's daily
presence with the family is to have the children ask the blessing for
the evening meal. But, of course, many families don't have this custom,
which accounts for the puzzlement of a little boy who went to dinner
with his parents at the home of a very elderly gentleman. After
watching the old man bow his head and speak in hushed tones, the boy
asked his mother, "What did Mr. Bryan say to his plate?"
