My Basket

Donna S. Thomas I smiled as I looked at my well-used picnic basket. It had seen a lot of family fun times, lots of great memories. We used it when the kids were little, going to the small creek nearby. Later, when they were in high school, we pulled it out more for excursions to the state parks and amusement parks. Looking it over, I wondered if it had lost its usefulness and should be discarded. Could it still have a purpose? My grandchildren love picnics. Perhaps I should keep it and hope for times with them. Then a thought struck me. I’ll use it for a different kind of fun time. It can have a purpose with those wonderful grandchildren of mine. My three sons and their wives have blessed me with some wonderful grandchildren. Here I thought, was a great opportunity to plant some seeds of the gospel in those little minds.
