Train up a child....

The Bible says:

 Proverbs 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

My first born

Matthew 7:12 ”So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

My Big "D"

Proverbs 29:17 Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.

My Sweet "D"

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above

One of my greatest joys

Proverbs 1:8 NIV 
Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching 

Is 21 years old....

Now a junior in college...
does a parent ever feel like they said enough?
showed enough?
did enough?
for them to remember..

all those things you hope for them

he's back at school
in his first apartment
with all kinds of  "hand me down" furniture
leftover camping silverware
and a hodge podge of other treasures to make his place comfortable

he has settled in...
quite perfectly!

We drove up today

to wish him a great day

take him to lunch

and buy him some groceries

There is NO WAY

 in this world

that we could be more proud
the man he is becoming.

from what we are seeing...
he DID hear all of the teachings of his childhood

”For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.Proverbs 8:35

We pray prayers of blessing and hope for our Big "D"!!!

We love you more than words can express!!!
