My father’s rich you know and I’ll tell you why? He spends hours playing softball with me. He shows me how to hold a bat. He yells run fast. See my father takes time with me, because my father’s rich you know.

He spends hours at the river with me. Throwing me in and listening to me giggle with glee. He yells swim and then yells, “Let’s do it again.” See my father has time to spend with me because he’s rich you know.

He spends hours at playing board games with me and showing me the correct moves to make. He is there always encouraging me along the way. My father takes time with me, because he’s rich you know.

He spends hours talking with me, telling stories, and instructing me. He sure has a lot of wisdom. He tells me that I am one of a kind and very special to him. I love to talk to my father and I love his help. See my father takes time with me, because he’s rich you know.

He spends hours telling me about his rich heavenly Father. His heavenly Father sent his son, Jesus, to die for our sins. God cannot look on sin and that is why he sent his son Jesus who is holy and who has no sin. By Jesus’ blood, we receive something like a bar of soap that washes away our sins. When we say we believe in Jesus, we receive a bath, one that washes sin away. Being free of sin, we can stand before God and receive a big hug. My father says God loves us so very much and that is why he sent His Son – Jesus to die for us. I want to stand in line and get a hug – don’t you?

You see my heavenly Father like my father cares about me and always takes time for me. My heavenly Father is extremely RICH you know.
