To God...From Caleb

As I sat at home last night after everyone went to bed (and I am still up doing homework) I kept finding myself in a mix of emotions.  I felt overly stressed one moment then I would find myself thinking and praying for so may others who are on my mind.   Do you ever get so stressed but then take a step back and realize just how blessed you are?  Well last night I found myself sitting at my computer crying as I read over many prayer request I had as well as other stories like the one I shared in my last post.  I could not stop thinking about the sick children and how thankful I am that both of my children are currently healthy.  They have both had their fair share of medical issues and some are continuous BUT none life threatening.  While I was finding myself stressing of the worldly things God led me through my prayers to take a step back and see how rich I am....that while I may not be rich in worldly terms by any means I am very rich in my heavenly blessings!  I serve a big and powerful God and  no amount of stress can take his blessings upon me away!  I am forever blessed!!
Now I just sat in quietness thinking of my babies...the ones on earth and the ones in heaven.  How much I love them I cannot express.  I am so proud of each of them and who they are.  As I sat there all alone I happened to glance over and see the note my son wrote to God (all by himself) this past summer.   I had mentioned when I first started my blog I should share his letter one day and since it suddenly appeared to me last night I thought I should share it.

I am going to write it just as my son who was then 7 years old wrote it....

"To God. Frome Caleb
Thank you God for coming into my heart and Thank you for helping me git saved today.  I wus so glad win my mom sed I cood git saved.  I am glad that I will hav everlastin life.  I wowt to tell you my faberite verse John 3:16 for God so love the world that he gave his only begottin sun that who so ever should belevith in him should not perish but hav everlasting life.  I am glad you died on the cross for our sins.  I Love you more than any thing."

Now I keep the original letter folded in my wallet but this is what I saw lying next to me last night .(.this picture and letter positioned something like this)....and I felt it was meant for me to share!

Have a BLESSED day!!


  1. That was so sweet and made me want to cry! You are such a great mother for teaching your children about God and the beauty of his love :)

    I wrote a post about something similar today... just one of those days where I thought beyond my everyday life.

    Thanks for sharing!


  2. I have many times wondered how I could have been "saved" at seven years old and how my girls, before they were even four, became Christians. It seemed so young. Reading this letter just reminds me that they get it. To have faith like a child. Awesome!

  3. Aw that's so precious! The faith of a child is a beautiful thing! Found you on Monday meet-up!

    With Love,

  4. That is just the most precious letter! I think it's so touching and so sweet that he did this all on his own. What a good reminder this post not look at the worldy things we have but to keep our hearts and minds on the things above!

  5. Hi, I love your blog. :] I was wondering, how did you get so many followers in such a short amount of time? Looks like you have only been blogging a days more than I have. I am trying (and failing) at getting a hang of this whole thing. Think you could help me out a bit?


  6. This is so sweet. :) Your son has such a precious heart. I think this is why God calls us to childlike faith :)

  7. What a precious letter! Found you through the blog hop! :)

  8. So sweet, and definitely a keepsake :)
