Treasures of Family

July 23rd, 2015

Earlier in July, my family went up to Linck Hill (northern PA) for a family reunion. These reunions only happen once a year since I have family members living in Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina.

Reflecting on that, it is always a joyous time to see family and to reflect that we should make the most of our time with them.

Matthew 6:21 ESV says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

There are so many things that can distract us from spending time with our family, but we should begin to wonder “What is our treasure?” Our family will always be with us (hopefully!!), so we should do all we can to truly treasure our time with them. 

Going back to our reunion time at Linck Hill — it was fun because we were all together for a weekend in ONE HOUSE! This allowed us to spend time and get to know those who we only see once a year.

A Treasure Indeed. 

Our beautiful house for the weekend!
