Two Heads are Better than One.

"'But I'm getting old, Mother,' said the banker wistfully. 'It's not as if I could begin all over again.'
'So am I,' said Mother cheerfully, 'But Chris is young, and an old head and a young head together are more than twice as good as just a young head making young mistakes....'"

We've made a lot of mistakes, Lowell and I. We both have master's degrees from the College of Hard Knocks. We've learned a lot. We're still learning a lot about life, business, and how debt can suck the life out of you. ~grin~ The question is, can we truly communicate what we've learned to our children? Will they listen? Will they insist on getting their own degrees? Our Matthew is starting college in another week. Will he finish without debt? The first semester will be paid for with a grant. Thank you God! He's working to get money together for a car. Will he be patient until he saves enough to get a starter car? Will he listen to the wisdom these gray hairs (and lost hair) have accumulated? I hope so; I pray so.

May God grant our children ears to listen and eyes to see and wisdom to discern that which is best in our lives and best for their lives. In Jesus' name, I pray.

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
