    For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
    PROVERBS 2:21

    My grandmother had a special cedar box in which she kept all of her prized possessions. I used to sit with her at the kitchen table as she would unwrap her treasures. There were old pictures, coins, gems, a lock of hair, a ribbon from a long past contest, a pair of old glasses, a hand-carved spinning top, and a dozen other knick-knacks. My grandmother would tell the story of each and every one, and the love and affection she shared with those memories will stay with me all of my life.

    I think God is a little like that. We are His treasures, and He has set aside a special place for us. Each of us brings forth a feeling of love and affection from God, and He cherishes each one of us. We are each one precious in the good Lord's sight, and He knows our individual stories by heart. It is good to know that God loves us so much that He will keep us for all time in a special place that He has made especially for us. The future glory that awaits all Christians is beyond our wildest imagination, yet we can rest assured that it willl far outshine anything we have yer experienced.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You, that we are one of Your prized possessions. Keep us ever in Your care, and cover us with Your divine love and affection. We praise You for Your love, and we will try to be a fond rememberance in Your heart. Amen and Amen.
