Children's letters to God

If you could write a letter to God, what would you write?

The following letters express that part of a child's world reserved for special thoughts and wishes. Some letters are disarmingly wise, others naive; some are knowing, some simple. Many are wieghted with seriousness; others are lit with smiles. All of them are addressed to God with much hope and trust.
