Let’s smile…. Children open their hearts to God.

The book, Children’s Letters to God, by Eric Marshall and Stuart Hampel, reflects special thoughts and wishes from children. Some of these samples are naïve, wise, simple or reverent or not. However, they solicit a warm compassion when looking into a part of a child’s world where trust and hope prevail. Hopefully, if you have children in your family you might want to ask them to write a short note to God. As adults you probably thinking none will reach God, but then are you so certain? Here are samples without their interesting handwriting and grammar which would add another element to their beliefs, questions and desires. “God, in Sunday school they told us what you do, but Who does it when you are on vacation?
