Sibling Rivalry

The four year old likes to collect wild flowers and poses with her 2 year old brother.
Note the posture as she pushes him against the wall, arm around him and the flowers.
He literally “looks up” at her. And smiles a pained grin of submission, head cast back in adoration/resentment. How can he compete at half her size? Later he will be taller, shoulders wider and wise in the knowledge that power resides not in size but in spirit. By then, we’ll see not leader and minion, but 2 warriors side by side.

Become Your Father


“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist after one grows up.”
Pablo Picasso
1 Peter 1:24:
“All our greatness is like a flower that droops and falls; but the Word of the Lord will last forever: Jesus, the Living Christ!”

Look within
Locate your light!
Nurture it!


When you fade
Open the portal
To eternity

Your Father
Soul song!
