The following essay was written some years ago by Danny Dutton, 8 years old, who lives in Chula Vista, CA. His assignment was to write about GOD. It’s a little long, but so, so worth the read, a little at a time.
One of GOD’s main jobs is making people. He makes these to put in place of the ones who die, so there will be enough people here on earth to take care of things. He doesn’t make grownups. Just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That’s so He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that up to mothers and fathers. I think it works out pretty good.
GOD’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, as some people, like preachers pray other times than bed time. GOD doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. As He hears everything, not only prayers, there must be a terrible lot of noise going on in His ears, unless He thought of a way to turn it off.
God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere. Which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting His time by going over your parent’s head and asking for something they already said you couldn’t have.
FAITH is all around us! We use every day: when you plan for tomorrow(you have FAITH that tomorrow is coming) because you plan; simply sitting in a chair(you don’t think to check to see if the chair will hold you or slide from underneath you) because you turn and sit; and walking(putting one foot in front of the other without thinking) because you move in space without falling on your face – you conquer the art of falling without thinking. . . now that’s faith.
FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. ~Hebrews 11:1 KJV
It’s that time of year! Where to find the perfect prom dress or tux? Where to get my weave done? Where to find those perfect shoes? Should I wear french nails, coffin, lace and peals, nude/neutral? What am I to do? All of these questions and where are the answers? Let a professional lead the way.
If you have a great fashion sense or think you do, please consult a professional coordinator to help with color scheme and design. Not your cousin who took a class, once. So that when you look back you can say, ‘That was the fashion then’ and not ‘Oh, no! What was I thinking’? ‘Why did I let . . . do my wedding, prom, etc.’
