Story: With Skin On!
We read of a father putting his four-year-old son to bed. Having finished prayers, stories, and all the little bedtime things, he kissed his son and turned the light off. His son started sobbing, "Don't leave me. I'm scared and don't want to stay here alone." The father tried to encourage the little boy by reminding him of God's presence and reminding him that they had just prayed together.
The little boy said, "I want somebody with skin on."
