Our California cousins and Wichita cousins had come to visit that summer as well as our Uncle Cecil who took movies with his new 8mm movie camera. This was the same one he had used in California earlier in the year to take movies of the Rose Parade, mainly concentrating on the bathing beauties and palomino horses that area is so famous for.
Uncle Cecil took movies of my cousin Larry, the “monkey” of the family, doing cartwheels and acting silly. Cousin Donnie who was my age had to show off doing some kind of silly gig and then the Aunts got into the picture showing how to do the Charleston.
In I Corinthians 3:12-17, Paul talked about what foundation we are building our lives on-“gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear, for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.” This reward is not salvation, of course, but special rewards for what we have done for the kingdom of God on this earth.
