Our Tenn grandgirls arrived Wed night to stay with us until Sunday. It is an impromptu visit that we are very grateful for! Little E came yesterday and kept us all entertained with her chatter and squeals of delight and the grandboy is coming today to spend the weekend. The "old homeplace" will be lively for a few days!
Psalms 127:3 says. "Children are an heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward."
I looked up heritage...it means "Something that comes to one or belongs to one because of birth; an inheritance". Strong's Concordance translates it as "heirloom".
We consider heirlooms to be valuable... treasures. We care for them, protect them, keep them in a safe place. That's our responsibility as parents and grandparents. The Message bible translates heritage as "legacy". I like that. Our children and their children are...our gifts to this world. They are the part of us that lives on when we are gone.
How important it is for us to train them well, teach them what is important, love them unconditionally.....care for them as the treasures they are. The world will be a better place for it!
