[Honor your father and mother]

Parents are an integral part of a child’s life. Without a dad, who would show you what it is to love your family? From working hard to put food on the table, to teaching you how to ride a bike, fathers set an example that a child never forgets.

Moms are no less important. They keep the house tidy, prepare meals, and they pass on their creative skills. Together they show you what teamwork is, and they exemplify faithfulness–at least, this is the picture that my parents painted for me.

Out of all the moms and dads out there, I’m thankful for the parents I have. They provided everything I needed, and taught me so many important life skills.  Good parents never stop loving their children, and good children never stop honoring their parents, so I hope that my life honors them, as they have honored what it means to be a parent.

“Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.”–Anne Geddes

“A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s.” —Princess Diana

“Honor your father and mother”–which is the first commandment with a promise–“so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” –Ephesians 6:2-3






Umm…I mean my parents.  I love my parents.  Not that I don’t love you, but I might not even know you, so it could be a little strange if you think I’m saying “love youz” to you. (Haha.)
