Accidental Poet

Paul Harvey – A letter from God


I’ve often wondered if God

Had our undivided attention

All of us, each and every one

What he’d like to say to us

How we’ve made him happy

Our wrongs that make him sad

How we can better serve him

What must we do to have peace

If he knew we’re all listening now

Just what would he want to say


  • dusk arising

    According to the bible which says he created man in his own image. He'd say, "Yes that's just the way i would do it"

    But there again that christian god was created when the world was flat and women had no rights. If fear of god wasn't drummed into us as little children would most of us believe in god. Be it a he or she or it or them or whatever?

      Well the world being flat and women having no rights were thoughts of man, not God. And as to "what" God is, that's up to God to let us know. Thanks for stopping by da. Appreciate the read. ; ) AP

        Well when you know of someone that god actually spoke to god then maybe that would be proof of gods existence. Until then it is all man made myth. No proof ever just blind faith in a so called omnipotent god who always has been cruel to life on this planet... unless you don't want to see that cruelty. None so blind as those who will not see.

          I suspect that many, if not most have asked the self same question....

          I'm still wondering while sitting on the fence....

          • Accidental Poet

            Figuratively speaking Neville, maybe that's the purpose for the fence. A place for the undecided to contemplate. Thanks for the read and comment. ; ) AP

            Doubt aside, when one looks at how wonderful the world really is, and how miraculous the heavens and all that is contained therein, one is left with the incredibly critical mathematics that make all this possible, one slip in the calculations as it where, and we wouldn't be here, nor would the rest of the universe. So, what would God say? Well, I suspect he'd probably weep. A perfect write for right now. Joe

              just a thought Joe. There are many people with as many ideas on the existence of God. Thanks for the read and comment Joe. ; ) AP

              A question I’ve never pondered but one I can’t help but think now. A fine thought provoking write AP.

                Eve Bob, I was christened back in the day when parents said, oh we've got a new baby, must get him/her christened, why? We left our daughter and grandson ( now 25) to make up their own minds, they have no interest in religeon, but if that changes in the future, thats up to them.i'v got to 72 now, and if there is a God, I'v got there without his help, and I can't see me seeking it in the future, That fence that people are sitting on is getting mighty crowded. So to answer your question I guess he would say simply, " ya messed that up, didn't ya" Bill

                  Everyone's entitled to an opinion Bill. And that's the right way to be. Thanks for reading and your comment. ; ) AP.

                  Well I aint on the fence - I stil find it impossible to accept but if anyone can prove me wrong I'll be hapy to climb over it. A thought - if there is a heaven it is surely not the sole preserve of those who believe - surely it's how you lead your life that matters. Fine write AP

                  • Accidental Poet

                    I agree Michael its how you live your life that matters. Thanks for the read and comment. AP
