The Bible says "A good person leaves an inheritance for their children's children, and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous." (Proverbs 13:22)
Sometimes, the Bible is unclear. It's authors occasionally speak very elaborate, and it is difficult to know precisely what is meant. I rarely feel that way about things written in Proverbs, this verse especially. If the Bible says in clear English (or Hebrew or Greek) instructions for what a good person is to do, than we are going to try hard to do that. We want to be good people. How will we have an inheritance for anyone if we indulge in every whim we come across? We won't. And we are learning that slowly every day.

Today on our way down the (long long) driveway, we saw a green heron. Unfortunately, we were without a camera, but it was such a beautiful bird. The second one I've ever seen, the first was at the rookery by the house we lived in before Moraine. I went back after grabbing the binoculars and a camera, only to find him gone. We also saw a fawn with her momma. So tiny, no more than a foot and a half tall, and just beautiful. Big brother spotted them as we drove past, we drove back just in time to see them trot/stumble away.
I did see two bluebirds and a basking turtle on my return trip. The Eastern Bluebird is so sweet to look at, even with a helpless worm in his mouth. yuck.
"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did." -Benjamin Harrison
Happy Decoration Day!
