Imagine parents DRUGGING their children? Take a look at a terrific piece most of us have probably seen but it can’t hurt to see it again and PASS IT TO THE YOUNG FAMILIES IN YOUR LIVES (please do that):
At my 50th high school reunion a friend asked me, ‘Why didn’t we have a drug problem when we were growing up?’
I replied that I had a drug problem when I was young: I was drug to
church on Sunday morning. I was drug to church for weddings and
funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no
matter the weather.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was also
drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought
home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the
teacher or the pastor, or if I didn’t put forth my best effort in
everything that was asked of me.
I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap
if I uttered a profanity. I was drug out to pull weeds in mom’s garden
and flower beds.
I was drug to the homes of neighbors to help mow the yard, repair the
clothesline, and if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime
as a tip for this kindness, my dad would have drug me back to the
Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in
everything I do, say, or think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack,
or heroin, and if today’s children had this kind of drug problem,
America would be a better place.
God bless the parents who drugged us….and for those that didn’t, I’m
really sorry… (end)
Z: I think we can really do with a lot MORE “Drugging”…….Imagine if parents today did any of the above? Kids could call Child Protective Services and be placed with other people. Some truly bad parents have necessitated this kind of situation and this situation’s been horribly abused by kids and the states…..
I will always believe that FAITH is part of this DRUGGING that leads our kids to better things. Yes, there are faithful who err, too, but it’s a whole lot better start than no faith.
Pray for the families who aren’t DRUGGING and pray for those who are, too! Our country will be grateful.
“Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.” Psalms 112:1-2
ALSO: Please keep Imp and his family in prayer as he lost his sister yesterday after her fight with cancer. Imp was by her side for days and I wish him peace and comfort through this loss and always.
Have a prayerful Sunday…
