A Letter to My Son Upon His Confirmation

by Vicki Piersol
(Green, Ohio)


May God always guide you to where there will be sun and warmth,
but make sure you remember rain and cold
So you will appreciate what is good.

May he help you to grow into an adult who is strong and proud,
but help you to keep the child within who would wear silly clothes and ridiculous hats just for fun, and play with your seven year old sister.

May God watch over you when you make mistakes,
(You know you will.)
And help you to understand that perfection is not your goal …
Only perfect love.

Now that you are too old to hold your parents’ hands,
May God’s hands hold you
And keep you safe.

May he help you to recall the eagles in flight you have seen
And understand the freedom and creativity he has given you.
Then you will soar.

And may he make sure you always keep in mind
The whales you saw at play in the ocean
So you will know that even the largest, overwhelming creatures of earth
frolic and enjoy the beauty of this world.

And when you look to the skies to see the constellations,
Never take for granted your place in this world
Or to see the vastness of what God created.

You are my son, my loved child.
But you are also a child of God.
Live and grow in God’s love.

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
