Sometimes I Fight the Giant
Every night when I put Drew to bed we read a short story from his children's bible. Usually he requests the"fish story" (Jonah) but tonight I suggested the "giant story" (David and Goliath). After finishing the story I tried to elaborate on it a little by explaining that David wasn't afraid to fight Goliath because he knew that God would protect him. I also told Drew that God loved David very much and He protects the people He loves. Drews reponse to my explanation almost brought me to tears. He said, "sometimes I fight the giant and God will protect me". I couldn't believe the depth of the metaphor he created. He continually amazes me with his level of understanding of what he has to go through and how he deals with his situation in his own special way.
