letters to god, questions from kazzy

Do I share stories with my kids about people that have been important to me that have died?
Do I believe He is the creator?
Am I allowing God to play a big enough part in my marriage everyday?
Is He in my heart often enough?
Do I tell my family members often enough how much they mean to me?
Am I willing to give Him everything; especially a broken heart and contrite spirit?
Am I able to acknowledge His hand in my life?
Am I grateful enough to be alive without needing to have things bright and cheery all of the time?
Do I spend too much time thinking about things (or people) that do not make me happy?
Do I have enough faith to expect Him to be watching over my daily life?

I absolutely love these! They're precious as they are. The innocence and candidness of children slays me sometimes. But your own "ponderings"...the questions you ask in response...add some powerful depth.

Great post.

Aww, kid say the sweetest (and sometimes most profound) things. Thanks for sharing.

These are so funny and cute. And I love the contrast (sort of) between their frank and innocent sentiments and your deeper reflections on your own life. Thank you!

I love that book.

And I love your own questions. Good ones, that we all need to be thinking about. And doing something about.

See, you have a much better perspective on things than I do. These just remind me of how when I was a kid, I was obsessed for about two years with whether or not He could see me in the bathroom.

Such cute letters.....it is good to save them. Thanks for making me "ponder" those thoughts today. I need to evaluate my praying skills I think......spend more time on "thanking" instead of listing out my wants and needs like I am giving HIM a grocery ist. I have alot of work...and pondering to do.

Melanie J- LOL! That one really cracked me up! There are plenty of times I don't want to be seen, and when I was a kid I never had any of the thoughts I listed here. I just had a general warm feeling about being loved by Him.

Oh, these are great! But I can one-up Melanie J. I still wonder where my guardian angel goes when I take a shower. Unless she's a girl. Then I guess it's okay. (I'm so not kidding!)

Sweet.I'm just do happy right now that I CAN surrender and know that I'm not the one in charge :) I enjoy being childlike in my faith sometimes... :)

OOOOH! I LOVE this! You are good. You always know the best way to put it.

Kazzy | January 29, 2009 at 10:00 PM

You guys are so much deeper than I am. I rarely think of things like that!

Thanks so much for this. :)

I laughed out loud at the reincarnation one....

When is it that we lose our candidness?

There is a reason why when I found a minute to blog surf, yours was the very first blog I visited. AND this post says it all.

I love the questions you posed. When pondered against the unfiltered honesty of children they really hit home.

Oh to have faith like a child without over-thinking...

What sweet little letters. I love this. And your thoughts too.
