In school they told us what You do. Who does it when You are on
Are you really invisible or is that just a trick? -Lucy
Is it true my father won't get in Heaven if he uses his bowling words
in the house? -Anita
Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?
Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don't
You just keep the ones You have now? -Jane
Who draws the lines around the countries? -Nan
I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that okay?
What does it mean You are a Jealous God? I thought You had everything.
Did you really mean "do unto others as they do unto you"? Because if
you did, then I'm going to fix my brother! -Darla
It rained for our whole vacation and is my father mad! He said some
things about You that people are not supposed to say, but I hope You
will not hurt him anyway. Your friend (But I am not going to tell you
who I am)
Why is Sunday school on Sunday? I thought it was supposed to be our
day of rest. -Tom L.
Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before, You can look
it up. -Bruce
If You give me a genie lamp like Aladin, I will give you anything you
want except my money or my chess set. -Raphael
My brother is a rat. You should give him a tail. Ha ha. -Danny
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their
own rooms. It works with my brother. -Larry
I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big but not with so much
hair all over. -Sam
I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions. -Ruth M.
I bet it is 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.
If You watch me in church Sunday, I'll show You my new shoes.
I would like to live 900 years like the guy in the Bible.
We read Thomas Edison made light. But in school they said You did it.
So I bet he stoled your idea. Sincerely, Donna
Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.
