My Son….

2013 03 17_0616_edited-1968958_4772573279184_1307554365_nYou’re starting, my boy, on life’s journey.

Along the grand highway of life,

You meet with a thousand temptations.

Each city with evil is rife.

The world is a stage of excitement.

There’s danger wherever you go.

But if you are tempted in weakness,

Have courage, my boy, to say no.

In courage alone lies safety,

When you the long journey begin

Your trust in the heavenly Father,

Will keep you unspotted from sin.

Temptations will go on increasing

As streams from a rivulet flow.

But if you’d be true to your manhood,

Have courage, my son, to say no.

Be careful in choosing companions.

Seek only the brave and the true.

Stand by your friends when in trial,

Not changing the old with the new.

And when, by false friends you are tempted

The taste of the wine cup to know

With firmness, with patience with kindness,

Have courage, my boy, to say no.

We live and travel full time in our fifth wheel or cargo trailer. We work for the Lord Jesus Christ in Disaster Relief Ministry. When not doing any of the above we try to have as much fun as we can. Possible items you might find here, in no particular order, dirt bikes, quads, hiking, camping, desert living, building projects, stained glass projects, our family, Bible study, RVing stuff, nutrition comments, and just about anything else we can think of....

  1. That is so neat!!!!  Is that PAUL in the truck?????  He should still be a little boy!                Doris   Proverbs 18:24 b “…but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”     “We need old friends to help us grow old – we need young friends to keep us young”
