Beeism of the Day

"...for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart." (Luke 6:45b) 

Queenie is fond of asking Killer and F.B. lots of questions.  Since they are only 2 and 4 years old, it tends to be more in the form of, "Which one would you pick?" or "What's your favorite?"  The favorite question gets asked pretty often, because both the boys LOVE to answer it, and Queenie has seen they really enjoy discovering another tiny portion of their identities.

This evening, Queenie asked Killer what his favorite character from the movie "Cars" is... Killer's answer was surprising, and was given quite a bit of thought before he told her!  The question was actually asked while Queenie was brushing his teeth, so the pause was probably the bubbles' fault!  At any rate, Killer's answer was: The Firetruck.  Not Lightning McQueen, Sheriff, Doc, or even Tex Dinoco (much to Queenie's relief!).

She was pleasantly surprised that Killer had chosen what can only be described as a minor character.  "Red", the firetruck, can usually be found gardening, cleaning, and tending things around Radiator Springs.  He's pretty gentle (another surprising irony, giving that it was Killer choosing him!), and Red really empathizes with all the residents of the town.

Hmmmmm........  maybe Killer's catching onto this whole "you've got to show kindness and gentleness to others" thing.  Sometimes, God shows us teeny, tiny victories in the most surprising and seemingly random ways- and you have to make sure you are watching!
