2015 Christmas Music Marathon - Day 8

Time in a Bottle
Since Christmas is about celebrating the birth of a Savior, it is only natural that Christmas is all about the kids. It seems that they grow up all too fast. The image above is from 2005. The image below was taken last week. A decade has passed and one of these children is now a young adult in her sophomore year at college. One will soon be getting her drivers license and the other two are  beginning their adventures as teenagers. Time flies.

How quickly a decade passes. These two images put into perspective just how little time we have to train our children and influence our grandchildren before they are making their own way in this world. The Bible tells us to "train our children in the way that they should go" and it states that the Bible is good for instruction in all things. Training our children in all things includes their religious and moral values.  There is a whole world out there waiting to tell them that anything goes. The Holidays, Christmas & Thanksgiving are excellent opportunities to teach our children important values regarding friends, family, and worship. We only have them for a few short years. We need to make the most of our time with our children and grandchildren.  Have a blessed day.

  1. Our babies do grow so rapidly don't they. Yes they do. We have to enjoy every moment we can too.

    Loved both the videos as always. I'm not sure I've heard the first one before. I sure like it though.

    Have a blessed day and weekend my friend. ☺
