See it.


Live it.

Helping my brother with computer issues yesterday I experienced a time warp. What I mean is I can depend on my older brother to take me back to the days we were growing up at home. Like clockwork I leave his house with fresh memories of yesteryear. I brought home a photo of Dad on a bicycle which I didn't have before and a newspaper clipping of his railroad accident at 42 years of age. Perhaps the most significant memory, however, was one I didn't share.

Holding a small dusty and handmade metal box in his hands, my brother gave it to me saying our Mother gave it to him after downsizing. She told him it was a gift from me in elementary school. The thing is, I have no memory of making it or giving it to her. Being out of square and falling apart, however, seems applicable to my shop skills. But I figure the memory of two people is more dependable than one so I will cherish it—until I pass it on with my memory of not remembering. Then again, maybe our other brother made it and mom had a tongue slip.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for memories and for Your providence that ties them together.
