....our homes would be full of stories.
How did the person feel when they received this old trophy for competing in The Hammer Throw? How many little shoes were made with this tiny little shoe form? Did the child love their new shoes and proudly show them off to their friends? Did they run around the playground laughing and singing as their shoes protected their little feet? How many miles did those shoes travel?
Did the gentleman who carved the Victorian picture frame have specific tools? Were his hands strong? What was his name? What was once inside the now empty frame?
Who's face, before mine, reflected in the old mirror? How did the roses get carved into the old soldered silver loving cup?
smile on us as we display them in our homes. How many others
before us have touched these same objects and admired them
like us? Where did they come from and how far have they traveled?
Just curious, aren't you?
~~~ I found this saying that I thought I would share with you. It is from
the book The Shack (which I am almost done reading).
You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put
miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you
in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live
in a world but a world lives in you.
--Frederick Buechner, Telling The Truth
