Love Your Parents

I told my friend, Ethel, that these few words says a lot. There is a lost connection between many of our parents and their children.  Without love, there can never be a connection. Some children talk to their parents as if they were their children. They have no respect, for their parents. I heard one young man say, that he seldom visit his parents, because he doesn't "have anything in common with them."

I know of a family who wanted their elderly mother to hurry up and die, so they could go on their vacation. She was very ill. She had spend all her time caring for her disabled husband, with the help of nurses, until he passed away.

The grandson, had attacked his grandfather, and beat him. His grandmother told me, their grandson, got angry at his grandfather, because he wouldn't give him money, and he beat him. She said with sadness, "We had to put a restraining order on him. He can't come here anymore. Our grandchildren used to visit us a lot, but they don't come anymore." She told me about how they enjoyed the times they spent with their grandchildren, when they were very young.

We have to know that, if children don't respect their parents, how are the grandchildren going to behave toward their grandparents?

"Love  Your Parents. We Are So Busy Growing Up, We  Often Forget They Are Also Growing Old."

"This is profound. Wish I had thought of it when my parents were still living."

Philippians 4:4-7

4. Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with 
    thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
