It’s hard to believe summer is already here! It’s been a hot one so far and I’m sure that I don’t need to remind anyone about this unbelievable drought we are suffering through. In fact according to the National Weather Service we are experiencing the worst drought since 1916… and that was back in April! I would encourage our readers to pray that the Lord blesses us with some rain very soon.
About 15 years ago, my wife and I were visiting my dad in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She wanted to find out more about my dad’s life, so in a matter of just a few hours, she found out more than I ever did in 32 years of knowing my dad. I really enjoyed hearing all of his stories and now am able to share with my children.
Part of the reason that I’d never ventured to find out on my own is that my dad isn’t the story telling type and I am not one who likes to ask a lot of personal questions. You put those two combinations together and it’s no wonder that there was such an information gap between my father and me.
Back in the Bible days, stories were passed from generation to generation by the people living in that era. Somewhere we have lost the ability to tell our children memories about our life experiences that made us the people that we are today. I am the world’s worst when it comes to that.
Sometimes my kids ask me to tell them a story about my childhood and I find myself either too busy or at a loss for words when trying to remember something in which to share. Well the good news is it’s never too late to spend quality time with our kids– sharing life’s knowledge, good and bad, and maybe a little less time on the computer or watching TV.
