Prayer of Senility

For those of us who are getting a little older:

God grant me the Senility
to forget the people
I never liked anyway,
the good fortune
to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight
to tell the difference…Senility

I Love my Parents

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

This week I thought I was going to blog about love the love that God has for us even before we have loved Him but I have said that so many times here. I have written about how much God loves all of us even though some may not believe in God. Then I thought how we as Christians are to spread God’s love and His ministry to all the people of the world.

Everyone has a story about how they came to find Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. How through the most difficult and horrific of times in their lives they had sought out Jesus Christ in desperation and our Jesus Christ our lord and Savior saved us from our plights and turned our lives around but that’s not my story.

My story is simpler…my parents taught their children to be Christian. My brothers and sisters and I went to church went to bible school went to Sunday school went to everything related to the Christian faith at our church and we were taught and raised to be Christians.

And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 (NRSV)

My parents did everything that God wanted them to do and that was to teach their children about God and God’s love and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit. My parents and the church instructed us on how to be a Christians.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)

I love my parents they are so awesome and thank them for giving us their children the instructions we needed to become the Christians God wants us to be…see I did write about love.

God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
