    the tears you shed in front of your son will flow in his heart a river of treasures such as strength wisdom and joy

    as a father you will see the reward of the godliness and time spending you employ when he is no longer a boy

    for while he is yet adolescent your God-figure is a mere shadow in his understanding

    but as he flies in the childhood of youth on the wings of your love and teachings he later awaits perfect landing on corrupt ground

    honor and respect with adornments his mother who is your wife
    then he will also honor and respect his all the days of his life

    teach him his soul- show him his family he must protect
    and 2 major things he should never neglect-
    (1)God's will (2) the poor
    by this he is whole

    above many things be sure that he is told
    that self-respect is to never be sold
    for any cost, any lost

    as the potter the child is the clay for you to mold in the Spirit of God
    saying life and peace is not brought by diamonds and gold...

    teach your son and daughter this jewel of life:
    a sheep of God's fold is worthy shepherd and head of household.

    water your seed
    "father" his need and life will have sprung in his spirit when he is old

    and God's blessings on his seeds will be bestowed as they walk in figure of their father..


    jehiah.

    j'hiah..this carries a beautiful message...
    to teach a child values and life's lessons in todays world is not an easy task but if we bring a child into this world, then we accept the responsibility and commitment to do so..
    spiritually uplifting....

    i realize that some women are the heads of their households having take on the "roles" of father and mother.

    as a man, men should fulfill their responsibilities. children, (sons in this case) are fruits of God that we should injoy, teach, love, parent with much perserverance and understanding realizing that his life, (as he should pray) is in the hands of the Keeper.

    nfinitely...

    Beautifully done peice.......

    I find it very nice when a MAN talks about the importance of a father............J'hiah my compliments to you for recognizing, that it is not always the seed that makes the Man, but the integrity and the responsibilty to follow it through..........my props to you, Epiphany

    What could I say...

    [size=huge]about such a piece,
    that would, actually,
    do it justice? All I can
    say is that every little
    boy needs a father
    like the one, so
    amazingly, described
    in this piece.
