I love raisin toast. It reminds me of special mornings. It was holidays and or mornings that I didn’t go to school and often it was when dad cooked breakfast. So when I go down the bread isle I find myself looking at the raisin toast and I can hardly stop myself from buying it. I am wondering what my kids will remember and if they will have memories that make them warm all over. I am faced with the question of how do I show love to my kids? Am I being intentional in the way I love them? I have to confess the truth is that I am not near as intentional or loving as I should be. I am reminded of the statement Bob Flayhart said “the only luggage we can take into heaven is the love of Christ we gave while on earth”(paraphrased, I can’t remember it exactly). My prayer for 2010 is to love intentionally and abundantly. Please read “love never ends” post.
