Making Memories


I love to make memories. My children are growing up so fast I wish sometimes I could hit the pause button. I was reminded of that tonight when my youngest girl Sarah started singing a song as I played it on the guitar. I'm not sure of the name of the song but it is from the movie "Summer Magic". It's one of the few movies we watch as a family. The song goes something like.."All I want to do, when the day is through, is linger here on the front porch with you". I really wish I could "linger" sometimes, but time goes on. My prayer is I make the most of the time God gives us. Sarah will be grown before Mom and I know it, but the scripture tells me that God can redeem the time that I sometimes waste and He can do that for you too. I pray you all have some "Summer Magic". I know I'm really enjoying this one.

Ephesians 5:15-16

English Standard Version (ESV)
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

You only think the time is flying now. Wait until the children in our home are grandchildren. Your head will spin with the acceleration of their passing years! We are cherishing each moment with Amanda's and Joshua's Benjamin, too.
