That got me thinking more and more of ...... the past.
How far back can I remember?
I pulled up this photo and stared at it until I could almost picture my large, lively and beautiful family filling all the rooms with love, laughter and sometimes fighting. There is my little self running up and down the wooden front steps.
I like to gather the tiniest flowers to decorate my dollhouse. I designed it from a cardboard box. The wrap around porch is perfect for hours of enjoyment. Sometimes on rainy days, I may climb all the way up to the old Victorian attic and have a bird's eye view. It was a fun place for a child to explore.
Such happy memories of those long gone cherished days of my childhood.
Time is so fleeting. I'm not really stuck in the past as my friend thinks.
I'm right here and now very much in the present. I'm aware that the Lord makes each moment new.
But with such a grand history.... ah the memories.
