As you grow and gain wisdom,
you will find that your parents
are not perfect.
You will wonder why
they make the decisions they do,
and you will disagree.
The time will come
when you are ready to launch out on your own
and your parents will tremble.
There may be memories
that you resent
and attitudes you resist.
Finally, you will reach a time
when you see your parents
as the struggling and imperfect humans they are;
Then you will realize that
you, Child, are the pinnacle of their legacy
and the very beat of their heart.
III John 4 – I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
