A chapter in the book My Reminders of LIfe 3

Dear God, It's Me

by Barb Hensongispsaca

Dear God,

It's me, Jenny. I need to talk to you. I want to make a trade. I do know it's too early for prayer,
but Grandma says she prays anytime. If You listen to her, and I know her prayers are very long, maybe You can fit in my short one.

Mine will be shorter than her meal one. Everything is cold by the time she's done. I know it's wrong to pray that she'll hurry and she says You enjoy hearing from us. Brother says sometimes our prayers aren't heard; but Grandma says You hear all of them. I believe her because she's older and I know she knows more than my brother. Daddy says she's been "around the block" and she knows everything, but, brother and I are not allowed. Maybe someday, we can walk with her.

Anyway, God, I need some help. Grandma says "don't beat around the bush" whatever that means.

My good friend lost her baby brother and Grandma said he went to live with You. I will mail You my favorite doll that You can have and hold to sing to; then You won't feel so lonely and Jenny will have her brother back. And there is a good side to this trade. You don't have to change dirty diapers. Grandma will know the address for You, just let her know when You've decided.


Can You help Grandma shorten her prayers?
