Problems, Engineers, and Snacks

Dear God, thank you for the nice day. [pause] Do you have any problems, God? If you do, you probably need to get an engineer. That’s their job, to solve problems. Structural problems… other problems… Sometimes they drive trains but that’s a different kind of engineer. And thank you that Mom made good snacks today. In Jesus’ name, amen.



Dear God, thanks for the nice day. God, why do I have to get really big when I get older? I won’t fit into my Thunder Drums shirt, or my Awesome shirt, or my Pirate shirt. That’s so sad. And God, my face is nice and smooth, but when I get older I have to get prickles like Daddy. I DON’T WANT THE PRICKLES. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Never, Ever, Squevver

Dear God, thank you for the nice day, and thank you for my new Hot Wheels. It’s mine now. I don’t have to give it back to Lucas, because he gave it to me. It was a present, God, and we don’t have to give presents back. I never, ever, never, ever, squevver, ever never have to give it back. [sigh] I have to give it back, don’t I, God. Well, I hope not, but we’ll see tomorrow, okay? And God, I also hope that I never have to go to the dentist. Love, Oliver. In Jesus’ name, amen.
