Tree of Life Day 22: Joshua 1-4

Joshua and the crew crossed the Jordan.  Joshua did something amazing - he had 12 men grab 12 stones from the middle of the Jordan and drop them on the other side as a memorial to God's provision and power.  Then he said something to his people:  "When your kids ask you about what these stones mean, you tell them that God split the Jordan and led us into the Promised Land and all the rest of the cool things He did." (Yes, that's my paraphrase)

In our house, we have something similar.  It's our memorial "box."  I'd encourage you to have it in your house for your kids and grandkids too.  Here's ours...

Enclosed you find things that remind us of God's provision, faithfulness, power, and work in our lives.  All encased in a cabinet older than anyone reading this post from Ginny's grandmother's family.  On occasion we get asked about it by others and we get to tell the stories.  On other occasions we get a piece out and tell a story to our kids.
