Where have all the Parents Gone… Children… Blessings… Grace…

Where have all the parents gone? Long time passing…¬†Where have all the parents gone? Long time ago….¬†Where have all the Parents gone??? Gone to drug fields everyone… When will they ever learn? When will they ever…. Learn????

Where have all the drug fields gone? Long time passing… Where have all the drug fields gone? Long time ago… Where have all the drug fields gone… Gone to children everyone… When will they ever learn? When will they every… Learn???

Where have all the children gone? Long time passing… Where have all the children gone? Long time ago…. Where have all the children gone? Gone to God, their souls as one… Yes, they have finally learned…. Yes they have finally… Learned…

The Bible teaches in Psalm 127:4-5 – “… like arrows in the hand of a warrior, happy is the man who has his quiver full of them…” Speaking of the children of Israel that walk in the way of the Lord, they are blessed, and happy are those that raised them and has his quiver full of them… Children are a saving grace in my life, and then some. Having the blessing to have raised 10, I do know that much…

Not too long ago an in-law approached me with a problem. His dad wanted him to purchase a narcotic for me off the street… What should he do? Having had my share of exposure to the streets over 4 1/2 decades ago… I advised he leave it alone… Just share he knows not where tog get such a thing…

Sad to say… When we have been down the path of abusing just about anything in life… Should we return to that – we do so a hundred fold – not knowing what lay in store for us… For his father… it was a tragic and sad death of a relatively young man still…

In prayer, my heart is heavy at times, and in reading something tonight… The above just flowed… For those who take offense, please forgive me for such.

For those on the edge, about to step into a place you may not really want to be – I propose that God is listening, all the time, intimately, and he is a God of mighty Grace, Forgiveness, and millions of 2nd chances.

Please take a pause, and just ponder as much. Our children are as much a reflection of us as they are teachers in our age, of some very simple things we taught them… Do not faint… Do not give up… Do not lose sight of teh fact that you’re not alone – nor ever will be.

May God keep you in peace, health, and sound mind / body…
