Parent Thought and "Oh my word!"

A Quick Parent Thought...

Today is a big day in the Puentes house. My son will be graduating high school today!

It doesn’t seem that long ago when my oldest daughter graduated high school, and now she is turning twenty-one years old later this year.

In a phrase that my wife uses sometimes, “Oh my word!”

Time sure does fly when your having fun.

Isn’t this true with most things? Before we know it, the things we felt were permanent, slip away and dissipate—it’s a thing of beauty and a curse.

I ramble, but in all honesty so many things in this world are temporal.

Even our relationships with our kids to some extent.

These, these relationships don’t have to be!

Make every effort to show grace and love to your kids before they move out—love your neighbor to Jesus. All of us are made in the image of God.

"Let this be your wish: That whether in life or in death God may be glorified in you." — Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
