God Has a Reason by CJ George

A little boy and his dad went for a walk.
The little boy stopped and looked up. He said,
"Why did God make the sun?"
The dad said, "To give us light in the day." They kept walking.
The boy saw a tree and said, "Why did God make the trees?"
The dad said, "To give us oxygen." They kept walking.
The dad said, "Look at that deer."
The deer looked up and ran away.
The boy said, " Why did God make the animals?"
The dad said, "To give us food." They kept walking.
The boy said, "Why did God make me?"
The dad said, "The same reason as the sun, trees and the animals;
God has a reason."

CJ,

I can't believe how beautiful "God Has a Reason" is. I thought you were writing down a story that you had read somewhere. It is fabulous. CJ, I always always knew that God has something special planned for you. I think you have a great talent for writing and that may be part of it. Many people are good at sports, singing, dancing and stuff but few can express in words wonderful stories. I look forward to more.

Love,

Grandma Paula

Dude, You Are Awesome! While I was reading your story, I realized that I was smiling at the screen! Gramma Paula is right, God does have a great and special plan for you and He has given you many gifts to share with our family and the world. This story reminds me of how wonderful God is in that He gave us you, and the Earth, and everything in it. I know God has a reason for you, too. "When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name Holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel." Isaiah 29:23
I Love You - Aunt Tammi

CJ, when I read that, I was like, wow, that was really good. Then, I saw that you wrote it, and I was like Oh my goodness! I can't believe that CJ wrote that! It was so good. I agree with everybody that you need to keep on writing! God has given you a gift and you should use it to the best of your ability!

(excuse all of the "likes")

Hey CJ,
I love your poem, it reminds me of the verse in Ecclesiastes 3:1 where Solomon is writing about Lifes true meaning; "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven". I look forward to more poems!
I miss you and love you!
