Sunday Serenity - A Father's Day Blessing




Listen with respect
to the father who raised you, 

   and when your mother grows old, 
don't neglect her.


(Mark and Miss S, October, 1990)



Buy truth—don't sell it for love or money; 
   buy wisdom, buy education, buy insight.
Parents rejoice when their children turn out well; 
   wise children become proud parents.


(Mark and Miss S, now 3 1/2, and Miss A, looking up at her daddy, 1994)


So make your father happy! 


   Make your mother proud!


Proverbs 23:22-25
