Letter to God: The Road Less Traveled

Dear God, True confession, I am now awake for an hour again approaching 5A.M., this time going through my Facebook, reading a great, thought-provoking blog post and generally making better use of my time. I just spent a good fifteen minutes looking at multivariable calculus and thinking yes, among other things I love math. I love […]

Letter to God: Cryptic Much?

Hi again who or whatever you are, Yes, some days be like that. I’m mostly writing now because that last one ended on a cryptic note. To be about as clear as stained glass, I’m not talking about my relationship with your son anymore. Because, reasons. Also, I really didn’t – and still don’t know […]

Letter to God: …

Dear God, FYI it is still not too late for me to convert to atheism. People do it every day. Usually I think it’s because this whole God thing doesn’t make sense to them. Me neither. I’ve known you for so long now and okay I am now writing you at 4 AM, sorry 4:45 […]

Letter to God: Hi Dad

Hi again, heavenly father, Not a lot to talk about, just checking in before virtual Mass at my local church which is a couple miles from my house but feels miles away. I’m thinking now about the fact that my biological father passed away this past fall. I believe he is in heaven, and therefore […]

Letter to God: Hell to the No

Hi again God, It’s me. So had a new realization today, well, several really. But one is another childhood memory when I was a newly baptized and then visionized Christian. You know that vision I had when I was 14, the one that saved my actual life AND pretty much immunizes me against any religion […]

Letter to God: Strange Dreams

Dear God, Oh man that salutation sounds funny now. I had the weirdest dream about a few minutes ago, and it’s already fading, so I’m not going to write it down, but sometimes I have these strange, late night dreams – nightmares(?) really. I just had one. And it’s like I won’t be able to […]

Letter to God: Scopes Redux

Hi again, eternal divine being(s) known as God, Okay so here’s the thing about plans. I think we might need to talk, really talk, more often than once a day because obviously this isn’t working. Yesterday while outside enjoying the gorgeous weather I filled up two sides of a blank envelope because I got “inspired” […]

Letter to God: You Had Me at Murder Hornets

Hi again God, I was going to take the rest of the day off, but I keep thinking: you had me at murder hornets. Here’s how I found about the murder hornets from China, as You will recall. First, one friend said something about the murder hornets from China. I told her to stop believing […]

Letter to God: Checking In Again

Hi again Abba/Father, Still not feeling in a super-great place but I’m feeling better today and wanted to write that out along with I am going to try adding prayer and writing these letters to my daily schedule, at least until I get my *regular* job back. Since writing fiction (my original 1:00 task) was […]

Letters to God: Coping

Dear God, Okay, whew, that last letter got really intense. I keep saying I’m going to write about the Eucharist, but I’m thinking maybe not. Right now, I’m trying to … feel human again. Yesterday, I was talking to my friend in New Jersey as you know. It was good to talk to someone of […]
