It’s the evening of the 2nd of March 2023 here in Australia and I’ve just ended a particularly busy day. Today was my father’s birthday. He’s getting older now and I took annual leave from work to help prepare his birthday party. I tend to worry these days about my parents as they are getting on in years. I used to grumble about doing errands and finding the time to help my parents in the little things. Now, I cherish opportunities to spend time with my family. I want to appreciate my parents as much as I can.
God tells us in Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you”. GOD has blessed us with family and, I hope for all of us, loving and caring parents. It truly is a privilege to care for them and appreciate the time we have together. May GOD bless your family and may we all be blessed with time to spend with our parents.
One thought on “Loving the little things for loved ones”
Amen! Now that mine are gone, I never regret the times spent loving them in little practical ways. Those are the precious memories that we will treasure forever.
