In the top of the closet I have a large blue box. It is stuffed full with photographs of the girls that have been taken over the last decade or more since we moved to Mexico. I have in mind to go through that box one day soon. In fact, I recently downloaded an app to help easily digitize old photographs. I also picked up some photo albums to organize “the box”. I can’t wait to see what treasures I find.
Yesterday, we watched home videos with the girls. It was so fun to see our babies once again and remember those precious moments when they were younger and to look around in amazement at how grown up they all are now.
We laughed at how the quantity of pictures diminished from girl to girl and how the last video was taken about 9 years ago when our youngest was just a baby. It’s hard to believe how quickly they grow up and how quickly time matches on.
It won’t be long until they are all grown and have families of their own. And although I am in no hurry for that to happen, I do look forward to watching them mature even more and behold these living treasures God has given me.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Matthew 6:19-
