Better Than A Thousand Days

My pizza crew!

One day with my sons is better than a thousand days anywhere else.

I have pictures of my sons when they were youngsters, taken at the pizza place I managed for awhile.

They’re wearing the funny hats shirts, and aprons I had to wear to work, and grinning ear-to-ear, quite obviously thrilled to be at work with Dad.

I see my oldest every few years, but haven’t seen my younger son for quite a long time. I’d trade a thousand days for one day with each of them.

I guess I know now how God felt all those years when I was away from Him. Forgive me, God.

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; … Psalm 84:12
