Create, Hand Down and Remember Those Valuable Memories

I use facebook for two reasons. The first is it is a great way for me to stay in touch with family and friends who are all over the country. Last year, at this very time, my sister-in-law was fleeing the Carr Fire and we knew about it right away because of facebook. We were able to stay in touch and know what was happening with our California family and friends through facebook. 

The other reason is because each and every morning it shows me the, "memories" posts for the things I posted on this day throughout the years before. I love reading about the cute things my grandsons said and did and the things they said last year and years before. It is a blessing to be reminded of the memories with them and with other family and friends as well.

This quote from Dr. Seuss is true; "Sometimes we never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." Looking back we are able to see how many memories are valuable for the joy they bring and for the lessons they teach.

This is true for our grandchildren as well. And, one of the wonderful things about memories is we are able to help create memories with have a point for our grandchildren. When we are intentional about planning opportunities to hand faith to our grandchildren and then do so, we are building memories which throughout their lives are able to be seen as valuable when they look back and remember what we said and did to hand faith to them.

Remember, in Judges 2 we read what happened when God's people did not remember Who He was and all He did for them and did not teach their children and grandchildren about Him. The following generations forgot God and fell into sin. We do not want our children and grandchildren to be those generations who forgot God.

So, create those valuable memories and hold on to them as well, because they are truly valuable.
