Kids' Letters To God

Dear God,
If you watch me in church Sunday,
I'll show you my new shoes.

Dear God,
Did you mean for the giraffe to look
like that or was it an accident?

Dear God,
Who draws the lines around the countries?

Dear God,
Please send me a pony.
I never asked for anything before.
You can look it up.

Dear God,
If we come back as something,
please don't let me be Jennifer Horton,
because I hate her.

Dear God,
I want to be just like my daddy
when I get big, but not with so much
hair all over.

Dear God,
I think about you sometimes,
even when I'm not praying.

Dear God,
I bet it is very hard for you
to love all the people in the world.
There are only four people in our family
and I can never do it.

Dear God,
Of all the people who worked for you,
I like Noah and David the best.

Dear God,
My brothers told me about being born,
but it doesn't sound right.
They are just kidding, aren't they?

Dear God,
We read Thomas Edison made light.
But in Sunday school, we learned
that you did it.
So I bet he stole your idea.





If I Could Catch A Rainbow

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
And share with you its beauty
On days you're feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best
A friend that's always there.

Covering All the Bases

A little boy was overheard talking to himself
as he strode through his backyard,
baseball cap in place and toting ball and bat.
"Iím the greatest baseball player
in the world." he said proudly.
Then he tossed the ball in the air,
swung and missed.
Undaunted, he picked up the ball,
threw it into the air and said to himself,
"Iím the greatest baseball player ever!"
He swung at the ball again, and again he missed.
He paused a moment to examine
the bat and ball carefully.
Then once again he threw the ball
into the air and said,
"Iím the greatest baseball player who ever lived."
He swung the bat hard and again missed the ball.

"Wow!" he exclaimed. "What a pitcher!"

If You're Afraid Of The Dark,
Remember The Night Rainbow

If tomorrow morning the sky falls...
have clouds for breakfast.
If night falls...
use stars for streetlights.
If the moon gets stuck in a tree...
cover the hole in the sky
with a strawberry.
If you have butterflies in your stomach...
ask them into your heart.
If your heart catches in your throat...
ask a bird how she sings.
If the birds forget their songs...
listen to a pebble instead.
If you lose a memory...
embroider a new one to take its place.
If you lose the key...
throw away the house.
If the clock stops...
use your own hands to tell time.
If the light goes out...
wear it around your neck and go dancing.
If the bus doesn't come...
catch a fast cloud.
If it's the last dance...
dance backwards.
If you find your socks don't match...
stand in a flowerbed.
If your shoes don't fit...
give them to the fish in the pond.
If your horse needs shoes...
let him use his wings.
If the sun never shines again...
hold fireflies in your hands to keep warm.
If you're afraid of the dark...
remember the night rainbow.
If there is no happy ending...
make one out of cookie dough.
(Cooper Edens)
