Jesus’ thank you note

Two weeks ago during church, Jack drew a cross on the program.

At the end of the service, he gave it to the pastor and said “please give it to Jesus”.

And then, in a moment that made me both proud and slightly appalled, he said “and tell him I want a thank you note”.

Sunday morning, this was in our church mailbox.

Jesus wrote my kid a thank you note.

So yeah, we’ve got that going for us.

  1. Why were you appalled that he wanted a thank you note? Do you think that someone at the church should have wrote the thank you note?

    • Because he demanded it. It’s fine to hope for a thank you note, but you never give a gift in the expectation that you will get one.

      I’ve drilled in to his head the importance of thank you notes, but now it is apparent that I need to talk to him about the fact that thank you notes are nice to receive, but we gift because we love someone and want to bless them, and that you may not always get a thank you note.

  2. Your pastor freakin’ ROCKS!!!!

    This is the sweetest thing I’ve seen in a long time. =)

  3. LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. How SWEET! That is precious. 🙂

  5. I am not religious and I almost skipped reading this post when I saw the title. I am so glad I didn’t!
    I think it is absolutely wonderful that your pastor made sure your son got his note! He has my respect and admiration. 🙂

  6. It always warms my heart when people take the time to invest in our children and give them positive experiences that will make an impact. Jack will never forget this.

  7. How awesome!! I love your life!
    I felt a bit of a reminder from your post for myself! When my children were young we ALWAYS wrote thank you notes. Back then we wrote at least one letter a day…..to a soldier, an invalid, a family member. I have grown lax in this area but will take steps to remedy this situation! You are doing such a good job with your Jack!

  8. That is seriously sweet. What a great church you must go to that they care that much about you and your family. Love it. Jack is a treat! He makes me smile.

  9. This made me tear up! My goodness… the sweetest thing I’ve heard in a long time.
