Things that make you go 'hmm'…
Tag Archives: letters to God
There is a new show on the BBC on Saturday nights called ‘Outnumbered’. I remember watching the first season and thinking how amazing the child actors are – I think they improvise the script. It is so well observed and really does depict family life (at least as I know it!) The little girl, Karen, is especially hilarious and says the cutest things. Here is a trailer of the show.
There are a load of clips on YouTube, this is one of my favourites…
I don’t know if you have seen this, it’s has been around a while but it makes me smile whenever I read these letters – childrens’ letters to God.
Children really do have a knack for getting to the heart of the matter. A friend of mine was taking his 5 year old daughter to school. They were talking about what she had been learning at school. The following conversation ensued.
Daughter : ‘Daddy, my teacher told us God made everything.’
Daddy : ‘Er, yes, he did.’
Daughter : ‘So he made all the people then?’
Daddy : ‘Well, yes.’
Daughter : ‘What did he use for the bones?’
And to end, the shape of things to come?
Kids. Don’t you just love ’em?
