Are you on target do you need alittle help from your father?
Tucker is trying to get a boyscout merit badge in rifle shooting. It's alot of work.Scott has been setting up a target and working with him alittle every other day so that he can get the practice he needs to earn the badge.
As I sit on my mommie perch and watch my sweet man come home from along day at the office and take the time to help each child put ear plugs in and take on the 'right' form to be able to hit their target...I'm in awe.I love the way this mans hands gently guides our children into the right position. This is alot like the way he parents..Gently guiding and just setting them up to hit their target when their older.
....Always reminding them of their target or their goal....
To carry on the torch for Christ...He says "I don't want you to just carry the torch I want you to pass it to your kids.."
So we should set up target training for our children every day and gently guide those little souls to keep their eyes on the Lord....
I can see through Scott how the Lord surely is so gentle and patient and loving with us.
"Train up a child in the way he should go:and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
