The Thought: If you ask me what I did this weekend, I am not sure I could answer. Somehow the days are flying by. I do remember Saturday our daughter slept in past noon. I had so many errands to run and didn't get to them waiting and worrying a bit... but she bounced out of bed scaring herself that she slept so late. She scurried around to get her chores done and her wash started. When Dad got home we left for errands topping off the evening with a wonderful "Dad-made" hamburger... which everyone loves here.
As I was dusting on Saturday, taking the time to individually dust each item on each surface I allowed myself the time to appreciate and give thanks for the memories attached to it and acknowledging the joy it brings to making our house a home. Sometimes I think we collect things and don't think about it again.
During our lifetimes we explore many paths and accumulate many memories and take on lots of burdens at the same time. Some of us assume many roles in our lifetime like mother, sister, daughter, artist, teacher, etc. Our roles are not only inside our family but reach out into our community as well. God has a mission for us in each of those rolls and it is up to us to carry it through. Just like in my dusting of my treasures, God treasures each of us individually and has gifts and journeys for each of us. We are His instrument to channel good to others around us.
We are an expression of His love at all times. Take a moment and think of the "treasured" people in your life.
"Do not fear, greatly beloved, you are safe. Be strong and courageous!" Daniel 10:19
