Lasting treasure takes time…

My husband & I love to walk in our neighborhood, the architecture of the older homes spark great conversation. He notices structure—I notice beauty.

Did their grandma always plant sunflowers in her garden? Was turquoise her favorite color as a child? Did he always dream of a home like this…

All the while he’s over there doing the math & taking mental measurements—wondering how long it took to build & if it has a slab foundation or block…

Is it built to last?

The material we use matters.

The attention to detail matters too.

Lasting treasure takes time…

one breath at a time.

one day at a time,

one brick at a time,

one seed at a time,

one grain of sand at a time,

There are no shortcuts.

This one’s for the sister who feels like the season you’re in will never end & everything feels like a lot & are we really going to make it through…

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:6
