For his bed time story tonight Melanie read Ethan a book about God. We go from Dr. Seuss to Thomas the Tank Engine to Mr. Men and all kinds of other topics, but tonight was a short one about God for kids.
Melanie called me in after a while to help answer a rather difficult question. Ethan had picked up on a line in the book that said that God gives us shelter and food to eat, and wanted to know why if that was the case, there are children in the world who have no food to eat.
Neither of us could think of a good answer, so we just said we didn't know. His next line was priceless though.
"But Mommy, we have food to eat, and sometimes I'm hungry. What's up with that?"
