A little boy said, “Mommy,
Come read me a story or two;
And sit here beside me…
And teach me to tie my shoe.”
But she said, “Son, I am already late
For the Single Parents’ Club;
I really have to go and learn
How to take care of you.”
He was too young to realize
There was no logic there
But a tear ran down his little cheek,
‘Cause he thought she didn’t care.
“I will drop you off at the ‘Center’
And the ‘sitter’ will read to you;
And maybe she will have the time
To teach you to tie your shoe.”
The sad part of this story
Is not so hard to see;
When you multiply this little child…
By four million and thirty-three!

A Father’s Introspect
He placed his little hand in mine…
Looked up at me so tall;
I knew that I must ‘measure’ up
Or we’d both surely fall!
Before he even walked, I thought,
What shall this child be?”
It took no time to realize…
That it depends on God and me.
I must be careful how I walk
Throughout my life on earth;
I want to present him back to God…
As pure…as at his birth.

Dedication: To Bobby Ingram who did his ‘fathering job’ well with our little boy and girl.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 It’s still in there….
