Filling treasure chests

“I began to picture my children’s hearts as treasure chests of a different sort, and I vowed to fill them with intrinsic treasures: the best stories, memorized scripture, priceless images of classical art, excellent books, memories from great feasts enjoyed together and special days celebrated, great bible stories and wisdom passages, plus heart photographs of love given, holidays cherished, lessons learned. I hoped my children would be able to draw from this chest of internal treasures when they needed wisdom or comfort in their adult lives, that they would have soul resources that would speak to them for a lifetime.” -Sally Clarkson
