A dear friend, about 40, one of THE smartest men I know, and an incredible teacher (when high school students say “he’s the hardest and the best,” you know he’s very good) texted me this yesterday in regard to something we were hearing in our Sunday sermon on line:
About raising children: He advises parents; “you are raising adults.” I thought that was so true…you have children living with you while you raise them into adulthood…you are RAISING ADULTS.
I THOUGHT YOU’D ALL RELATE TO THIS:
“I think people my age love complaining about the world we are doing everything to create. We live reactive instead of proactive lives. We need to do our jobs.”
COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WORLD WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING TO CREATE.…which, being a Conservative, he knows is CRAP. Young people are doing everything in the world to raise middle aged babies in preparation to live in the world which is more dangerous, less American, less faithful…………Well, I’m interpreting what he said. You can interpret as you may.
ALSO: though my calendar does not show it, I believe today is the birthday of GEO. WASHINGTON and, while he’s now considered trash, I DO NOT CONSIDER HIM ANYTHING LIKE THAT and would like to wish Mr. Geo. Washington a very happy birthday, indeed.!
