It’s been said that most children have the spirit of inquiry spanked out of them before they enter school. Not so with Tina. The spirit of inquiry lives on, and so does her initiative.
At a year and a half, she’s Mommy’s little helper. When Mommy washes the floor, she gets her baby wipes and washes the floor too.
But what if Mommy’s not doing her job? Surely the clean socks on the shelf need re-washing. Hmm . . . what does Mommy use? Oh yes—dry cat food. Mix with water, add socks and scrub till clean.
I love how Tina’s mom, Maria, doesn’t get after her for things done in innocence.
Perhaps God has taught Maria to look on the heart, as He does.
“ . . . man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” I Samuel 16:7
