sometimes when cooper is afraid of monsters coming in his room at night or mean guys trying to get us i remind him that Jesus protects us & our home. i tell him that Jesus is stronger than the monsters & he won't let them bother us. i want him to help him feel safe & confident in Jesus' power. i guess i didn't explain Jesus quite right.
on our way home from church today cooper was asking me about Jesus. he said, "mommy, does Jesus had fire?" i asked him to clarify. he said, "jesus had fire to shoot at the bad guys & kill them." ummmm, ok...not exactly. then cooper asks me, "does Jesus fly in the sky?" apparently, he sees Jesus as more of an action figure than a Heavenly being.
Jesus to the rescue!
