Treasures on earth, treasures in heaven

While I was putting away the dishes from our tea party yesterday, I was thinking about where my treasure is.  The tiny teacups and saucers belonged to my great-grandmother, the plates we put our food on came from my dad's mother, the dish that the cheese crackers were in was a wedding gift to my mother, and the serving dish was some of my china.  I really enjoy having those things and it gave me a little thrill to set the table with them and share them with the grandgirls.  The dishes themselves are probably almost worthless if I listed them on Ebay.  They are treasures to me, though, because of people I think of when I use them.

They aren't my greatest treasure, though.  Not by a long shot.

I treasure.....

These treasures will be in heaven.
