A family in Colorado tried unsuccessfully for years to save enough money to replace their ancient bathroom fixtures with modern, sleek ones. But each year as skiing time rolled around, the bathroom money was used for a family ski trip. The children are now grown. A son recently wrote to his parents, remembering fondly the annual ski trips. As his father read the letter, he chuckled and said to his wife, “Honey, I’m glad we spent the bathroom money for those ski trips. I can’t imagine our son writing home and saying, ‘I sure do remember our wonderful bathroom fixtures!’”
Our children are with us such a short period of time. What have you done with them lately to build some beautiful memories?
“All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children’s peace.” (Isaiah 54:13)
