Sunday Post: Sentimental Value

WATER SNAKE 2013

This week’s Sunday post is on the topic “Sentimental Value”:

Sentimental Value is defined as- The  value (or worth) of an object, derived from the memories associated with it.

So what objects do I ascribe the most value to here on Earth?

Hmmm. I tend to be rather unsentimental. I think connecting too closely to THINGS ties one to Earth. We need to hold our possessions loosely.Yet there are PLACES that stir such pleasant memories in me I love to be in them…

Hey! If you would like to put your two cents in on the Sunday Post go take a gander at the rules over at…

  1. Of course you don`t have to be sentimental Sir , Your a leader of the church and I know your rules keep believing. Am I right ? Thanks for sharing this photography 🙂

    • Thanks Jake. I really appreciate your post topics; They really get me thinking and creating. Faith is central to my lifestyle and that faith does call me away from tying myself too closely to the world or to the past as the apostle Paul said. “I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. 8 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ 9 and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ.[c] For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith. 10 I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, 11 so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!

      Pressing toward the Goal

      12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it,[d] but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Phil.3:7-14

  2. I guess my ‘sentimental value’ objects would be things my sons made me when they were young – and yes, they do take pride of place along with the more costly ornaments . . . but my real treasures are not just sentimental: they are rock solid. They are guaranteed promises from the omnipotent, creator God!
