“So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
Welcome to Treasuring the Tiny Moments. My name is Jamie, a homeschool mother of eight. I am the author of A Brown Bear’s Language Arts Study, and I taught middle school in a small town before I became a stay at home mom. I created this space to share a collection of our treasured moments found in our homeschooling adventures, children’s literature, and more!
The very core of Treasuring the Tiny Moments stems from one of my favorite Bible verses found in the book of Psalms. It reads, “So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom,” Psalm 90:12. The declaration of this delicate, yet powerful verse brings strength when I am weary, it causes me to be still before the creator of the universe. Can you hear Moses utter this humbling verse in the stillness of his busy day? Or perhaps while penning this Psalm, he heralded a sweet aroma of harmonious worship before his King, devoting this beloved scripture to the many generations after him.
When the quiet whispers of this scripture resonate through the secret places of my heart, glimpses of the beauty and frailty of life permeate to the very core of my being. The awareness and acknowledgment that life is a vapor, ushers wisdom to a heart like a rippling brook overflowing with cleansing water. I am reminded to slow down. I am reminded to not allow the fleeting distractions of my day to pull me away from the important work. I am reminded to hold my family close. I am reminded to treasure the tiny moments God has so freely entrusted to me.
Will you, dear reader, join me on this beautiful journey of life, grasping His hand with child like faith, seeking the tiny treasures He fully gives throughout our days? I will tell you, the walk isn’t always easy. Some days we have to hold on a little tighter. Some days we need to be carried. Many days, we need our strength renewed over and over again. Being still before Him, listening for His still small voice, and clothing ourselves with humility is the fruitful path to those tiny treasures. May God richly bless you.
