The Greatest Gift

“Perhaps the greatest gift any father can bestow upon his children, apart from the covenant blessings of parish life and a comprehension of the doctrines of grace, is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives a knowledge of the world, and it offers experience of a wide kind. Indeed, it is nothing less than a moral illumination.”

Thomas Chalmers

  1. A picture really does say a thousand words…thanks for sharing! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun despite teething and flus and such. It’s fun to see pics of big family vacations and wonder what it’s going to be like for us some day…
