Max Lucado writes in his book, “Just Like Jesus (p4); When my daughter Jenna was a toddler, I used to take her to a park not far from our apartment. One day as she was playing in the sandbox, an ice cream salesman approached us. I purchased her a treat, and when I turned to give it to her, I saw her mouth was full of sand.
