Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it."
To My Son
By Jere Riddick
If there is ever a message that I can share
It’s that life has not always been fair.
It’s had it joys, fun and games
But it has also brought sorrow, tears and pain
Life has thrown some curve balls at me
Sometimes knocking me to my knees
But on my knees was the best place to be
Because there I prayed for your safety
So what I can tell you about this crazy life
No matter what happens take it in stride
You may face unhappiness, or pain or strife
But remember to keep God the center in your life
If there is one thing that I am sure of
It is that God has never failed us
So the lesson in life I want you to know
Life may not be fair, but God won’t let go
I felt like I was losing you as you grew to a man
But I have realized a mother’s prayer never ends
So no matter how old our children get, remember that they still need our love, our encouragement, our prayers and our support. I know I have been blessed in my life with parents that were there for me no matter what and I hope that one day my children can look back and say that about me as well.
