Treasure Hunt
If you seek [wisdom] as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord. —Proverbs 2:4-5
On January 1, 2008, Keith Severin and his 7-year-old son, Adrien, agreed that they would spend at least 15 minutes every day that year searching together for treasure. Carlos Alcalá’s article in the Sacramento Bee described how they went out each day in every kind of weather to see what they could find. A year later their collection of coins, golf balls, recyclable bottles and cans, and various other items had yielded more than $1,000. In the process, they enjoyed many hours of companionship and fun.

If we decided to spend 15 minutes a day searching for treasure in the Bible, what would we find? Solomon wrote: “If you seek [wisdom] as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. . . . Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path” (Prov. 2:4-5,9).

Growth won’t happen all at once. But gradually, day by day, we will be changed through reading God’s Word and obeying Him. And think of the privilege and pleasure of spending time with our heavenly Father.

It begins with a willing commitment, continues with exciting discoveries, and leads to the treasure of wisdom and life.

Search the Scriptures’ precious store—
As a miner digs for ore;
Search, and you will surely find
Treasures to enrich the mind. —Anon.

Rich treasures of God’s truth are waiting to be discovered.
Bible in One Year: Genesis 1–3; Matthew 1

...actually sitting here watching the Rose Parade! We are 3 minutes from the start of the parade so we can step outside and sometimes even hear the bands if we listen carefully. It is a sunny beautiful day in Eagle Rock!

Happy New Year everyone!

Time to write the new year on the first few checks in the book, until I’m used to writing 2010!

Also need to transfer the birthdays and anniversaries from the 2009 calander to the 2010.

Then there’s taking down the Christmas tree.

It’s going all the way to 12 above zero today! Luv that globull warming!

May it be so Lord, it is the desire of my heart. Without You I can do nothing. You are my fortress, my refuge, my high tower. Praise the LORD in all we do. In Jesus name, amen.
