Danny’s God

Danny Dutton, an 8-year-old boy from in Chula Vista , CA . was asked to do a homework assignment.  It was a writing assignment; the topic  “EXPLAIN GOD”

 

EXPLANATION OF GOD:  One of God’s main jobs is making people.  He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth.  He doesn’t make grownups, just babies.  I think because they are smaller and easier to make.  That way he doesn’t have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk.  He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.

God’s second most important job is listening to prayers.  An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime.  God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this.  Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has 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 mom and dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t have.

Atheists are people who don’t believe in God.  I don’t think there are any in Chula Vista.  At least there aren’t any who come to our church.

Jesus is God’s Son.  He used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn’t want to learn about God.  They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him.  But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.

His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn’t have to go out on the road anymore.  He could stay in heaven.  So he did.  And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God.  Like a secretary, only more important.

You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.

You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s God!

Don’t skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong.  And besides the sun doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway.

If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can.  It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared, in the dark or when you can’t swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.

But. . .you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do for you.  I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases.

And…that’s why I believe in God.

How many times have we heard someone say “out of the mouths of babes”?    I pray this makes you smile!

Threefold Blessing

It was a very busy weekend for me.  I was accepted into the membership of our small community church (Praising the Lord for leading me to an awesome family of Bible believing, Christ centered believers!!)  One of my grand-daughters got walloped in the nose at her baseball game by someone at the practice tee (She is fine..no broken bones).  The hot, humid weather is gone for a few days–so yesterday was the perfect time to prune down my enormous tomato plants, feed my birds and just do some outside work.

When I opened my e-mail yesterday I was shocked that my blog was nominated for 3 different awards.  WOW— I am so very humbled.  I don’t write this blog for man’s approval…but I thank Him ever so much for using it for His glory!

I was nominated for this award by Paulette from Paulette’s Blog.  Paulette’s Blog was the first blog I starting following when I started my blog in January.  The most amazing thing about her blog are the “Wednesday’s Praise and Worship Session”.   She faces some complex, painful physical conditions– but her love and relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ is very apparent by the joy she has and brings to others each week.  Check out her site    http://pbus1.wordpress.com/

The guidelines for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
2. Paste the award image on your blog, anywhere.
3. Tell them 7 facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other blogs you like for this award.
5. Contact the bloggers that you have chosen to let them know that they have been nominated.

Seven facts about me:

Well first and foremost I love my Heavenly Father so much and I am so thankful to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for my salvation!!  I enjoy photography, especially clouds– I like Mediterranean style food– My living room is like a mini greenhouse– I like good reality TV like Extreme Home Makeover– I never went to a class reunion–

I am only nominating 1 person for this award– big  🙂 everyone as I introduce you to Anna!  Her blog http://daughterbydesign.wordpress.com/   “A journey of faith…” is a beautiful chronicle of this young woman’s walk with the Lord.

My dear sister Paulette who nominated for the above award– also nominated me for the Commentator Award . I don’t know a lot about this one— but I thank her for the kind words she said to me in her comment when she nominated me.   I assume the rules from above apply here as well.   There is  one person’s blog I follow regularly because he shares numerous devotional items from various sources and once in a while will share a tad about himself.  The materials he shares have been great steeping stones for me so I would like to nominate one blogger, a dear brother in Christ!

Again, big smileys  🙂  for Wayne.  Check out his blog  http://wayneaugden.wordpress.com/

Finally, I would like to give a big thank you to Faith from Faith Rises  http://faithrises.com/  who nominated me for the “Beautiful Blogger Award”.  Faith’s encouragement from The Word is more than an inspirational!   Her blog contains rock solid Biblical words to aid anyone in their continuing faith walk with our Blessed Lord God!

Since I have already given some tidbits about myself,  all that’s left is to nominate.  I have 2 nominees for this award.  Big smileys again– 🙂 for both of them!

First, I would like to nominate Jeanne at Heavenly Ramblings.  She may think they are ramblings, but I would prefer to think of them as “Heavenly Raindrops” because they are filled with the love of the Living Water–our Jesus.  Check out her blog at http://heavenlyramblings.wordpress.com/

Next, to a young woman who is honest about herself, her walk with the Lord and her growth in the process.  Here name is Gail!  Her blog http://findingtheway777.wordpress.com/  is filled with her past and her present.  Every post if something new… she loves the Lord so much.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*******************************~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I first started this blog, I never knew about awards.  I thank both Paulette and Faith for their nominations.  However, it is not I that should receive the glory… for the glory alone belongs to the One whom we call the Creator and Sustainer Almighty God– in three persons.

Rejoice and let the praises ring to Him in heaven!

Whimsy 4 Ur Wednesday

I’ve seen some very interesting church signs in my day so I thought I’d share a few that may bring a smile or a chuckle. 

***Disclaimer***  All of these photos are random and none of them express my opinion about the church itself.  This is only intended for entertaining one’s spirit with something that is not a fleshy lust.  Enjoy them 🙂

 

 

 

And last… a very good reminder to all of us!!

It takes less muscles in your face to smile than it does to frown
