Remember . . .

As we sat in church last Sunday, celebrating the Resurrection, it occurred to me that Easter is all about remembering. Remembering what Christ accomplished on the cross, what He did for me.

As we sat together at dinner with family members young and old, and listened to the eldest member recount things from her past, it occurred to me that family is all about remembering.

These past couple of weeks I have been reading in the book of Deuteronomy, marveling at what value God placed on instructing the Israelites to remember. Moses rehearsed the many ways that God had met their needs and led them through difficult circumstances. Remember how the Lord your God led you ... (Deut. 8:2). Do not forget that he led you ... (Deut. 8:15). Remember the Lord your God ... (Deut. 8:18).

Helping my kids remember has long been an unwritten goal of mine. I have fond memories of growing up around multiple family dinner tables as my grandparents shared story after story of their earlier lives. What a wonderful privilege to be able to do the same with our children.

Sonlight includes some wonderful titles that encourage "remembering" ... In Grandma's Attic comes to mind (and more in that series). Little House in the Big Woods is another well-known title in this category.

What better way to teach of God's faithfulness than to help your children make "remembering" a regular part of their lives? I would encourage you to start some "remembering" with your children if you haven't already!

Still on the journey ...

One Response to Remember . . .

    Ah, Judy! So very true. I love this Easter / Passover period for remembering the blessing of the Lord and His grace given to us in Jesus. And always we end up talking about funny / poignant / interesting / crazy / fun / sad stories from our past. What amazes me is how the Lord has created us to love stories so deeply. I love seeing my kids eyes sparkle, their little bodies leaning forward in anticipation as they listen to another story from granny or dad or mom or whomever is doing the talking. They ask regularly, "tell us a story from when you were a kid, mom!" and they love it. :) And so do I! As you mentioned, the Grandma Attic stories were a big hit for my kids - so much so that we ended up buying the other stories in the series. It got my reluctant 7-year old reading good solid chapter books on her own for the first time! So thank you, Sonlight!
