I Know What Is Really Important

My sweet rascal boys are at my house today and since it looks like the day - or a good portion of it - will be rainy, we are going to paint flower pots, plant seeds (for a project I'm reviewing and will share with you next week), bake cookies and just enjoy spending time together!

We are also going to read more of, I Can Learn the Bible: The Joshua Code for Kids: 52 Devotions and Scriptures for Kids; this book is a great tool to help grandparents (and parents) pass on a heritage of faith, but helping the children they love better understand the Bible and what it means.

The other day, Josiah and I were talking about things which really matter. He agreed video games, shows, toys, etc. were not really important. While he might be sad and miss them if they were to disappear, they would not really make a big difference in his life if they were gone. But, he said his family, God and the Bible were really important, because if any of them were gone, it would make a huge difference in his life.

I'm so glad that, even at the age of six, Josiah is able to understand the difference between things which are not really important and those which are! 

I know the difference between what really matters and what does not, as well. Passing on a heritage of faith to my grandsons is at the top of my list of things which really matter. Another vacation, or spending time doing things I might want to do are not nearly as important as seeing my grandsons grow to be boys, then teens, then young men and one day grown men who make the choice to love, know and follow God. So, while there are things I want to do today, I will be spending time with my grandsons - and happily so!
