What My 9-Year-Old Son Wrote About God

[from 15 September 2001. Original spelling and punctuation intact]

About God.

Standing up for what you believe in.......

If you do what's right it might be bad but it'll turn good in the end.

Telling the truth.......

When you lie you get in trouble. A Lie is when you tell something that isn't true when you tell the truth you're free sometimes.

When you're scared........

God is invisible but he's everywhere and he can do anything and he watches every move.

The true meaning of Christmas......

Christmas isn't Santa's Birthday like Darnell suggests, Christmas isn't about getting it's about giving.

Loving your Neighbor......

Everybody is your neighbor even if they aren't on your Street and you should love your Neighbor even if they're different.


My oldest son at five-and-a-half, as "King David"

Gratitude......

When you have Gratitude folks will do nice things for you.

Caring.........

Caring is when you're nice to someone and when you care you feel happy.

Self esteem..........

If you're little and you're scared don't worry because God makes everybody special even if you're little.

Kindness..............

Kindness is good because it always works if someone's mean use kindness.

Patience...............

If you're last in line be calm because you'll have more fun when you wait.

Calmness............

When you get out of control be calm everything is ok now.

How God created the world..........

When time began the earth looked brown and black so God said let there be light and light appeared, then God called the Darkness night and the light day, then God made a Sea and a roof above the Sea God called the Roof sky, then God made land with lots and lots of things to eat, then God created Fish in the Sea, then God made land Animals, Last of all God created a Man then Adam the first Man took a Deep sleep God took 1 of Adams ribs and created a Women God also created us.
