How Much Does Jesus Love You?

Dear Karen,
My name is Jasmine. I am 8 years old and I go to St. Timothy School. I have a story I want to show you and it is the first story I have ever written. My mom and dad think it is great but I want to know what you think about it. Here is the story.

How much do you think Jesus loves you? If you answered a lot you are right!
He loved us so much that he died on a BIG, BROWN cross just for US!
Jesus loves you in every little thing you do. Like when you clean your room,
listen to your mom and dad, or take care of your pet. Which one of these have you done?
Can you think of any more things you can do? Did you know that Jesus made everything?
Well, he did! He made every single thing in the world. Dogs,cats,trees,flowers, and even you!
He made everything! We celebrate Jesus in holidays. Here are some of them.
Santa gives you toys in Christmas but Jesus is the one who tells him what to bring us.
We also celebrate Jesus’ birthday on Christmas. Remember when I told you that Jesus died
On a BIG, BROWN cross for US? Well, we celebrate that he died on that cross on a holiday called
Good Friday. Why do we call it Good Friday? Isn’t Jesus dying a bad thing? It is a bad thing but it is also a
good thing because he died for us. After Jesus died on the cross he came back to life and no one can do that except
HIM! We celebrate that in a holiday called Easter. Well, I hoped you liked the story and REMEMBER . . . .


Love, Jasmine
