Raising boys is hard work,
and honestly, I am often exasperated.
But as I read God's word,
I am encouraged to keep on,
trudging at times,
joyfully bounding at others,
praying for them.
These are the days of our boys and men.
They work as hard as they play.
They love, encourage, protect and provide.
May the lord bless each one
with a measure of faith that is deep,
devoted, and unfailing.
