If You ever get lonely, You can always come and play with me.

Dear God, I think about you lots of times, even when I'm not praying.

Dear God, in public school, they taught us that Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday school, I learned that You did it. I bet he stole your idea.

Dear God, I know lots of people just say it, but I really love You.
Let me have sweet dreams; good night!
