I needed a good laugh what with all the junk going on in the world. Maybe this will make you smile as well. Blessings! Silouan, monk

Subject: Kids Talk To God




1. Dear God,
please put another holiday
between Christmas and Easter.
There is nothing good in there now.
Amanda


2. Dear God,
Thank you for the baby brother
but what I asked for was a puppy.
I never asked for anything before.
You can look it up.
Joyce


3. Dear Mr.
God, I wish you would not make it so easy
for people to come apart
I had to have 3 stitches and a shot.
Janet


4. God,
I read the bible.
What does beget mean?
Nobody will tell me.
Love Alison


5. Dear God,
how did you know you were God?
Who told you?
Charlene


6. Dear God,
is it true my father
won't get in Heaven
if he uses his golf words in the house?
Anita


7. Dear God,
I bet it's very hard for you
to love all of everybody in the whole world.
There are only 4 people in our family
and I can never do it.

Nancy


8. Dear God,
I like the story about Noah
the best of all of them.
You really made up some good ones.
I like walking on water, too.
Glenn


9. Dear God,
my Grandpa says you were around
when he was a little boy.
How far back do you go?
Love, Dennis


10. Dear God,
do you draw the lines around the countries?
If you don't, who does?
Nathan


11. Dear God,
did you mean for giraffes
to look like that or was it an accident?
Norma


12. Dear God,
in bible times,
did they really talk that fancy?
Jennifer


13. Dear God,
how come you did all those miracles
in the old days and don't do any now?
Billy


14. Dear God,
please send Dennis Clark
to a different summer camp this year.
Peter


15. Dear God,
maybe Cain and Abel
would not kill each other so much
if they each had their own rooms.
It works out OK with me and my brother.
Larry


16. Dear God,
I keep waiting for spring,
but it never did come yet.
What's up? Don't forget.
Mark


17. Dear God,
my brother told me about
how you are born
but it just doesn't sound right.
What do you say?
Marsha


18. Dear God,
if you watch in Church on Sunday
I will show you my new shoes.
Barbara


19. Dear God,
is Reverend Coe a friend of yours,
or do you just know him through the business?
Donny


20. Dear God,
I do not think anybody
could be a better God than you.
Well, I just want you to know that.
I am not just saying that because
you are already God.
Charles


21. Dear God,
it is great the way you always
get the stars in the right place.
Why can't you do that with the moon?
Jeff


22. Dear God,
I am doing the best I can.
Really !!!!
Frank


And, saving the best for last .

23. Dear God,
I didn't think orange went with purple
until I saw the sunset
you made on Tuesday night.
That was really cool.
Thomas

Bless me, Father!

Those are hilarious! biggrin

They (the children and their thoughts) make our day more enjoyable! They just say the darndest things!

May I add some to your list: smile

(1) A 3-year-old praying the "Our Father":

"Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name.
Amen."

(2) A little boy overheard praying:

"Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it.

"I'm having a real good time just the way I am."

(3) Another 3-year old's version of the "Our Father," ending it with:

"Lead us not into temptation,
"but deliver us from E-mail."

(4) A 4-year old has another idea:

"And forgive us our trash baskets
as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets."


(5) A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to Church:

"And why is it necessary to be quiet in Church?"

Her youngest, a 5-year old little boy, replied:

"Because people are sleeping."

(6) A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, ages 5 and 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson:

"If Jesus were sitting here, He would say: 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'"

The older turned to his younger brother and said:

"You be Jesus!"

(7) A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said:

"Would you like to say the blessing?"

"I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied.

"Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said:

"Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

When my dad was a little boy, he thought the Lord's Prayer included the line:

"And lead a snot into temptation..."
