Proverbs 22:6 confirms what I was feeling on my most recent mountain bike ride with my daughter.
” Point your kids in the right direction— when they’re old they won’t be lost.”
There is just something amazing about being able to be 50 plus and still have a great relationship with you adult children.
Yesterday in the late afternoon I managed to squeeze in some time for a pre sunset mountain bike ride with Natascha my amazingly focused and goal oriented daughter.
Really, I might say she squeezed in the time.
Anyway, as I looked behind me to watch her flying over babyheads and cleaning some “non average terrian” I thought about Proverbs 22:6 and how I have watched Tash find her own way along lifes path without getting lost.
Man, the rewards of parenting for the long haul just keep getting better.
Here are some pics of my reward as well as hers.
Helmet heads having a blast in this life! 🙂
If you are parenting here is a qoute from one of my heros Pastor Bill Wilson of Metro Church in NY city.
“It’s easier to build boys and girls than it is to repair men and women.”
And just a note to self : It is a lot funner too.
