Parked and Dusty Memories

Parked and dusty memories…stored fondly in a quiet place, reserved for those who’ve touched our hearts and left their mark while passing through our busy lives. Favorite stories…family tales…photos, keepsakes, homemade gifts…young children’s handprints cast in clay. Faded papers…sports events…high school yearbooks…programs from an 8th grade play. Scraps of fabric…quilts and dolls and baby shoes…pocket knives and boy scout books…treasures stashed in every drawer and every nook. Circumstances bring us here…random thoughts and passing years…mixed emotions…smiles and tears. Standing in an empty home filled with 50 years of days now gone…a family scrapbook filled with things…some remembered…others odd and hard to place…years and years of gathered stuff…keepsakes…cook books…cobwebs…dust and endless love. Making choices…what to save…sorting, grouping, scratching heads. Memories triggered by hidden finds…of loved ones passed…a different day…another time. A story shared then back to work…sentimental value measured first…praying for His guiding hand…to make wise choices…to trust His plan.
