Tina and the Space-time Continuum

“Time is different from other stuff,” says six-year-old Tina thoughtfully. Pondering further, she asks if space and time are the same thing because it takes time to get to other planets. I say I don’t think so because space is where you put things and time is how long something takes.

Admiring the sunrise on the way to school, she comes up with a creative idea that reminds me afresh that we are God’s creation. She wants to follow the pink sky and see where it goes. There are a couple of days after the Christmas holiday when Maria works and Tina and I will still be on holiday. Will she want to follow the pink sky then? I hope so!
