Window of Opportunity

I love to search for treasure. I may find a sweet treasure in a most unexpected way. Revealed at times in the midst of castaway piles of the past. Not everyone wants to recycle, reuse, or repurpose.
New is perfect. I too have seasons of that thought.
But there are memories of times gone by that draw us to theses objects, things that might be scruffy, a bit battered, but once were loved.
I love certain old toys because they remind me of the sweet and gentle times with my babies. There is a shared joy with my family and their children as we reminisce of times shared from their childhood. From toy trucks, tea sets, pick up sticks, and the like, we have a common goal to pass on those treasured times.
It has become a lovely past time to find these treasures from our pasts and laugh and share a bit of family history with a newer family member.
We are building and emotionally weaving together the fabric of a new generation as we weave our story.
There are also bittersweet memories of those who are gone and things missing that even a web search can not bring back.
So as the New Year approaches, look carefully at your discard pile in life.
Consider..is there still treasure there?
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:
