My Greatest Treasures

Jesus Christ said Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal (Matthew 6:19-20). I don't have a lot of treasures here on this earth. My greatest treasures are my three daughters ~ Sarah, Katelyn, and Ashley. Thankfully they are treasures that I have "laid up in Heaven." All of these girls have made a profession of faith - asking Jesus Christ to be their Savior. This is the greatest gift that they could ever have given me as their mother.

And I'm so glad that years ago my husband and I made the decision to home school these girls. Fourteen years later each new day continues to brings new blessings. It is without a doubt one of the greatest experiences we have ever had. We live in a day and time where our children are asked to grow up so quickly in so many ways. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to keep the girls in the nest a bit longer ~ guiding, protecting, and preparing them for the world that awaits them. Thank you to my husband for working so hard that I didn't have to work outside the home. Thank you Lord for the glorious opportunity.
