...there's a way!As our children were growing up many years ago, Jack and I would often caution them about the friends that they would keep. We'd try to explain to them that it's so easy for "friends" to bring you down but it's difficult to lift up your friends to the way that you think and believe. I used to teach piano and as a result, I'd use my piano as an example to the little ones as they were learning about life. I would ask them if it would be easy if you were standing on top of the piano to lift another person up on to the piano. Of course, they would say, "No, Mum!" But how easy it would be for the "friend" to pull you down from that piano to live the life of the not so good lifestyle! I think that the little "parable" got through to them.
Well, out of my archives of photos, I found these three that brought back to me the lessons I tried to teach the children when they were young. Geordie had just got out of the river from having a swim and he saw Rebecca climbing up onto this massive rock in the park.
He loves Rebecca and I know he just wanted to climb up there so badly to be with Rebecca. She tried to help him but it was an impossible task to drag him up so finally, she just encouraged and encouraged him and he tried and tried....
Finally, he made it and was so happy to be with her on top of that rock!
Happy to be Together!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
