Tips on Tuesday: Cherish

I'm taking a little break during Christmas week, but wanted to remind everyone about the word cherish.
Webster's defines CHERISH as:
--verb (used with object)
1. to hold or treat as dear; feel love for: to cherish one's native land.
2. to care for tenderly; nurture: to cherish a child.
3. to cling fondly to: to cherish a memory.
Remember today and every day to cherish those around you. Cherish your parents, your spouse, your siblings, your friends and your children. I never understood how true it is that the days are long, but the years are short when you are raising your children.
Now the oldest is in middle school and I'm getting a glimpse of how short the years are. I sit in a unique place with a middle schooler and a toddler--and I wish I would have cherished the moments with the older two like I am with the youngest. I know I tried, but if you're in the place where you have young ones---TRY HARDER! I promise you won't regret times spent cherishing your children.
I want to take a moment and cherish each one of you who read this blog. I cherish my faithful readers and I cherish those who find me accidentally or through another.
Most of all, remember you are cherished every moment of every day by a Creator who loved you enough to send his son to die for your sins. As we celebrate the birth of that son, I hope you find all the peace and joy that comes from knowing Him...and I hope you know how cherished you God.
