“And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
Yesterday, I received the following email from my very dear friend, Holly. I hope it’s all right with her that I publish it here. This email is a treasure to me for a few reasons:
I love Holly’s reminder about our close family friendship that now spans three generations.
These simple pictures speak loudly to the rewards of teaching children the Word of God.
The account and the pictures are a reminder of the tough job of parenting, coupled with it’s share of exciting moments.
Holly refreshed my mind as to what a precious treasure is the memorized Word of God.
Hi Sis. Buxton,Thought you might enjoy these pictures from last weekend’s BQ Tournament in Ontario. Rebecca and I sure do make cute kids! I LOVE that they’re best friends, just like me and Beck, Andrew & Adam, and you and my mom!Nate, Ian, & Zack SO wanted to be on the same team this time – and they got their wish. They had a blast, quoting God’s Word. (While Rebecca and I had 13 heart attacks and 5 strokes from the stress of watching them!) Their team got 4th place in the Junior Division, and Ian got 1st place highest individual scorer. Wow!Love you and miss you!!Hugs,Holly
Mommy, Rebecca, with son Nathaniel
