What Is Important?

Today my Mom asked me to post….so I am filling in for her.

Upon watching my younger siblings, Jessica and Matthew, playing spaceship in our living room last night with some Play Hut tents,I was transported to a time about 6 years ago when another set of children were doing the exact same thing.

Joshua and I would stack the tents on top of each other to make a spaceship, and then we would pretend to launch off and explore the moon with coats as our space suits.

I’m fourteen now, we were 8 and 6 then, Jessica and Matthew are 8 and 7. I still enjoy playing with them sometimes because they love my company. But last night I was content just to watch.

Children grow so quickly. Now, Joshua and I are doing other things, just like Jessica and Matthew will be someday, but as an older sister, it is part of my responsibility to take advantage of every moment, making them feel important when they are talking to me or playing with me.

Don’t hesitate to spend time with your children, young and old. Older siblings, take advantage of the little time you have with your little brothers and sisters. Build that brother/sister relationship and think twice before you start a fight or say an unkind word. You won’t be in the same house forever……So ask yourself, what is really important?

What I’m learning:

Do not leave food unattended…..lest the two-year-old might just sneak a finger into your eggs……Benjamin!

A Poem To Share:

The Author

I was in the company of a talented Christian lady when a friend said to her,”Why have you never written a book?” “I am writing two,” was the quiet reply. “Have been engaged on one for ten years, the other five.” “You surprise me,” cried the friend,”what profound works they must be!” “It doth not appear yet what they shall be,” was her reply,”but when He makes up His jewels, my great ambition is to find them there.” “Your children?” I asked. “Yes, my two children. They are my life work.”

Scripture Meditation:

Matthew 19:13-15 “Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.”
