We don't have a lot of traditions in our family (though my children may disagree) but as I get older (not old mind you, just older...) I'm growing to love traditions. Our church follows many traditions of the reformed faith and I love it!!! I'm trying to think how best, belatedly, to establish some traditions in our home.
I'd love to hear what traditions you have in your family. Did your tradition come from your extended family, did you see it in another family and bring it to your family, did you think of it on your own?
For you youngers, what traditions from your home, or other homes you've seen, are so meaningful to you that you hope to carry them forward into your future home? I look forward to seeing you all (who are mostly second and third generation Christians) carry forward traditions rich in meaning to your future families. How neat for your children to say, we do this because.... and be able to point to a forefather who was faithful.
Ah, traditions! Not for the sake of tradition itself but to the Glory of God!
