Praying for Coffee Cake

An overweight business associate of mine decided it was time to shed some excess pounds. She took her new diet seriously, even changing her driving route to avoid her favorite bakery. One morning, however, she arrived at work carrying a gigantic coffee cake. We all scolded her, but her smile remained cherubic.

"This is a very special coffee cake," she explained. "I accidentally drove by the bakery this morning, and there in the window was a host of goodies. I felt this was no accident, so I prayed, 'Lord, if you want me to have one of those delicious coffee cakes, let me have a parking place directly in front of the bakery. And sure enough," she continued, "the eighth time around the block, there it was!"
