Kids' Perspective

There is nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.
Erma Bombeck

What do kids think of angels? Here are some thoughts:

I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
Gregory, age 5

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.
-Sara, age 6

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
-Mitchell, age 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
-Henry, age 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!
-Jack, age 6

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again, somewhere there's a tornado.
-Reagan, age 10

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
-Jared, age 8

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if
they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.
- Vicki , age 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
-Sarah, age 7


  1. I love made me smile this morning. Your grand-daughter is so precious.

    Love you my friend,

  2. So cute. Kids sure hear things differently from adults, and sometimes get right to the heart of the idea.

  3. Don't you JUST LOVE a child's perspective!!

    These are PRECIOUS!!! Love your pic of Susannah!! What a doll she is@

  4. These are simply classic, reminding me of a little boy who thought the three older ladies following him one day were named Shirley, Goodness and Mercy!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  5. Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

  6. Smiling here too, nothing like the wisdom of a child!


  7. Thanks for the smile you rubbed us with! Your granddaughter is adorable! God bless.

  8. Hysterical! Children remain the best source of humor anywhere, and for all time. From your collection, they are even smarter than angels. :)

  9. So cute. My cousins is having a Christmas party this year called a WHITE OUT. To attend you must wear Angel attire. It should be fun :)

  10. You definitely provided piles of smiles today! I love this...

    Blessings, Debbie

  12. This is too cute, Mary. And the picture of your little grand daughter, so sweet.

  13. Love this post, Mary! I especially liked the one who said his angel was good at math not good at science. lol

    And I especially loved the picture of your little angel! ;-)

  14. Hi Mary -

    This is a delightful read. Thank you for this humorous piece.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see "perspective" in your title because on Thursday December 8, 2011, I wrote a post titled, "PERSPECTIVE." Only GOD...

  15. Out of the mouths of babes!

    I just love the wonderfully quirky way that children look at the world. No wonder Jesus loved them so much. I think it's going to be quite thrilling to meet the angels one day, don't you??

    Susannah is adorable! Just the perfect little angel...


  16. Haha! It's brilliant, what comes out of kids mouths. I'll have to pass these on to my grandkids.

    Merry Christmas, Mary!

  17. So cute! I have a 4 and 3 year old little Grand daughters that are beginning to express the cutest things and honestly their perspective makes me think some times. :) They see the world so differently from adults. I love them!

    Love ya!
