For my son (and daughter): Watching children grow

The following great thoughts by Rod McKune are inserted into the beginning of many of my books #…
enjoy
c
Watching children grow
is like threatening the ivy
to climb the garden wall.
You wait for it to happen
you hurry it along with love.
But still you’re disappointed
at giving someone life enough
to walk off on their own
and not be carried in your arms.
You never turn back – not once,
and yet one day they’ve grown apart
or taller
 
It’s all the same.
Polly put the kettle on, we’ll all have tea.
Giving love to children
has made us older overnight.
 – Rod McKune

I hope, I pray that world leaders, like Russia, USA, Iran, etc (including especially Bashir al-Assad) will heed that message…about developing the moral will!

If only!

“Together, one heart, one mind, one life, one small step at a time, let’s plant the seeds of hope for a better and brighter future… then together let’s walk towards it.”

“When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

eagle“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
– c

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

PS

“Climb those mountains, keep chasing your dreams and then one sunny day catch hold of them, but don’t forget to stop, rest a while…and admire the view along the way, seeing how far you’ve already come from the higher slopes of life’s long (and at times very hard, difficult) journey.”
