Boys and their Toys

     We had an exciting time last week watching Gage while Hollie and Zack went on mission trip to Nicaragua. Him and his Papa spent as much time as they could outside playing with the toys.  When I say toys I mean a little riding toy and a John Deere lawn mower. Gage would drag his toy up the steep driveway and head down it going as fast as could be.  His mom got wind of this type of fun and sent a helmet. (Mom you are no fun) When he got tired of that he would head to the tractor and wait for Papa to follow. They would take off going up and down the hill we call a yard. It was not good when I made them come in.  Neither one of them were happy.
     Three of the four days we had Gage it rained. This did not make for a happy camper. He would stand at the front glass door and want to go play with the toys. What can I say every time there was a pause in the rain we would run out and fly down the hill.  I know the neighbors thought we were crazy but he was happy which made Papa and Nana happy. (What are grandparents for?)He loves his toys.
      I have been thinking about my toys the computer,tv,cell phone. How out of sorts to I become when I am seperated from my toys?.How much time do I spend with my toys? How are my toys affecting others? Boy my heart has become heavy. I realized I had put my toys before the one who loves me most, my heavenly father.
      As you go through out this next week think about the time you have and what you are doing with it.  Are you waisting time with your toys or are you spending precious time with the one who loves you most?

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your stength.
Deuteronomy 6:13
