3-Week Series: Double Blessing


Summary: God is so in love with you that He will go to drastic, even crazy means to get your attention.

A group of four-through eight-year-olds were asked: “What does love mean?” Their answers vary from the amusing to the profound.

Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.

Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.

Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.

When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.

Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.

When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.

When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you’re scared they won’t love you anymore. But then you get surprised because not only do they still love you, they love you even more.

Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Denzel Washington.

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.

Love cards, like Valentine’s cards, say stuff on them that we’d like to say ourselves, but we wouldn’t be caught dead saying.

Written by Danny Dutton 8-years-old, of Chula Vista, CA, 3rd-grade homework assignment. Explain God. Wonder if any of us could do as well?"

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 grown-ups, 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 leaves 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.

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 people 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.

1. It is amazing all of the crazy things that people do when they are trying to win someone’s affection.

2. Love letters, writing love songs & poems, goofy voices, and the list goes on!

3. I want to take a look at Hosea’s life and compare it to God’s love for us.
