Grandpa was always going on about the good old days, and the lower cost of living, in particular. “When I was a kid, my mom could send me to the store, and I’d get a salami, two pints of milk, 6 oranges, 2 loaves o’ bread, a magazine, and some new blue jeans…all for a dollar!!”
Then Grandpa said sadly, “You can’t DO that anymore…..they got those video cameras everywhere you look.”
I’ve learned that the Lord didn’t do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
Thought for the day
Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that built up” (GN).
Harmful words create hurtful memories. Those words that are spoken in anger and belittle our weaknesses and our faults and our failings are like knives in the heart. You don’t want to leave harmful words in your family’s memories. Instead, choose your words carefully, and speak in love.
