vroom

Dear God,


It all gets to be too much. If only there were some way to just get a boost. I feel like a need a big engine to push me through. Are you the engine? Am I the engine? Are we all the engine, the big one, that could?

Amen.

judy blume only wishes

Dear God,

Are you there, God? It's me, Middle School. Every day the students come and spend seven hours focused on anything but learning. They judge each other, whispering behind folded hands and pointing when they think I don't see. Giggles slip out when someone leaves a room and hearts break in the hallway. Everything is a Big Deal. Are you there, God? Do you notice when they cry and laugh and blame and lie? I hope you're there. They need you.

Amen

just another manic monday

Dear God,

Right now, my classroom is orderly, peaceful, ready and waiting for the students to arrive. Please keep an eye on them, as they navigate the maze that is middle school. Please keep an eye on me, as I try to do the same in high heels.

Amen.

Dear God,

Sometimes, it's not as complicated as it looks. Sorry I forgot to look for you. Next time, I'll do better.

Amen.

I feel bad for boys. All they can ever hope to be is the icing on the cake. I really can't thank you enough.

Amen

glamorous: flossy, flossy

Dear God,

Perhaps you inspired the editors of these magazines to recycle the same articles each month to avoid the same old redundant prayers...how can I improve my body/skin/makeup/wardrobe/sex life/etc. Maybe people who sit in airports, on beaches, or in dentist office waiting rooms were abusing prayer privileges and you wanted a break from the monotony? You could at least inspire better writing.

Amen.

that laffy taffy...

Dear God,


I think the "take a picture of yourself by extending your arm" idea was invented for moments such as this. It has been a happy new year, you sneaky bastard.

Amen.

school's out for summer

Dear God,


Just think: two whole months without a twelve-year-old asking me for permission to use the bathroom. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the person who decided to let school out in the summer.

Amen.

lazy, hazy, crazy daze of summer...

Dear God,


Whatever twists and turns down the road of fate I had to take to end up living this close to the beach...well...they were so worth it. I knew you had a plan!!

Amen.

just a little bit longer

Dear God,


So beautiful and so pretty and so what's up with them only living for a day or two? Couldn't you maybe grant the butterflies an extension?

Amen.

say what?

Dear God,


I really never understood that saying "You can't see the forest for the trees." I am trying to see for a tree? Am I trying to see the forest but the trees are in the way? Aren't the trees the forest itself? Huh? What? Help a sister out!

Amen.

comment card

Dear God,


I know the Bible doesn't say anything about hell being the place you are sent to complete a mountain of frivolous paperwork, but maybe if you included that, people wouldn't be so quick to break so many of those commandments. Just a suggestion.

Amen.

Dear God,

Sometimes I wonder where you find your inspiration. Creativity is a blessing, indeed. Kudos on the giraffe.

Amen.

Dear God,


It's all so blurry. Sometimes I get so confused. Where do I go? What do I believe? Who do I trust? Don't forget about me.

i'll be there for you

Dear God,


I just spent the weekend with my human best friend, and then got to come home to my canine best friend. They've both been with me since 7th grade - who knew I'd ever be so blessed? Oh. I guess you did. Thanks.

Amen.

seasons greetings

Dear God,

Last week, I saw Spring. My red-head friend declared, "I love Spring. It is now my favorite season. I'm so happy to know that about myself." Thank you for bringing this change in season and this change in my friend. Thank you for making some changes so pretty and so green.


Amen.

you're so sneaky

Dear God,


Sometimes ordinary things are beautiful from a different angle. Sometimes we take for granted the things we see every day. Please help me see things from any angle, so I can always appreciate what's underneath.

Amen.

Thank you for the person who invented pierogies. Thank you for looking the other way when I stuff my face in moments of pure gluttenous pleasure. Seriously, thank you.

tee hee

Dear God,



Sometimes, or really more like, all the time, I laugh at inappropriate things. Inappropriate things like the circular objects seen here. I just can't bring myself to say the word, Lord, because I'll start giggling again.

Amen.

the start

Dear God,


Thanks for the ability to create plans, and the ability to accept when plans fall through. (But, can you maybe make the latter one a little easier?)

Amen.
