Hidden Treasure

on March 17, 2012

Watching my two youngest sons play outside my window.  They are making a little land filled with a house, yard, patio, cars, etc. in the dirt for the rolie polies they caught.  Sam is describing each of the areas to me and points and says, “this is the graveyard.”   I said,  “interesting Sam, you added a graveyard.” Earlier Sam who is 9 put Jesse who is 5 in time out. When I asked him why he said, “He squished a bug.”

This week in our home, we have had quite a few discussions about death, as my daughter Hannah has had her first experience in losing a dear friend.  Sam seems to be dealing with it in his play time and asking questions like, “how do you know heaven is real?”  Hannah had been doing respite for a dear elderly woman for several months now and they became good friends.  Sam got to go over a few times and spend the day with them. 

Death is only the beginning.  It has been given for man but once to die. God intends for us to meet that death at the cross.  Everything else past that point is Life, including the leaving of our bodies behind.  This world was never meant to be our destination or our home.  We will miss those who get the blessing of going on before us.  But rejoice in knowing eternity began the moment they said Yes to Jesus.  Oh and what a beautiful thing!

Today has been a day of life in our home.  We rejoiced with Miss Louise’s family as they remembered her life, and my youngest daughter crossed over into womanhood. Explains a LOT of things going on lately.  LOL!  Life is precious.  Our treasures are hidden in our adversities.  And, as Hannah said, “You never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. 

“Shika Baba” Hold on to the Father, and hold on to those you love.
