Father's Advice


I am sure we all have certain things our Dad's taught us as children that we carry into our adulthood. You know, the kind of stuff that is wise and very helpful throughout life. My son was the recipient of such advise from his Dad this morning. I am sure you are on the edge of your seat waiting to hear this glorious revelation but let me give you the background information first. We went to the late service at church this morning because yours truly likes to sleep in and then poke around on weekend mornings. We sit upstairs in the balcony area that has tables and then seperate sections of chairs. I was a little extra slow this morning so we were not able to sit at a table, so we were in the chair section. Behind us was a couple and their two children. About midway through the service we heard a snore. You really had to be there because it was so darn funny. Wife quickly poked husband to wake him and we could hear the kids snickering (while we were trying to supress ours). In the car, we were talking about it and here is when my husband gave his fatherly (no pun intended) advice. Son was saying that one day at school he was done early in class and had fallen asleep. Hubby tells hin "Son, if you are ever caught sleeping, when you are awakend say 'Amen!'. Gets you out of trouble each time. You will never get in trouble for praying." Oh my. I am not sure what God thinks about this advice! LOL!

Amen!

I love it, he is one of the great wise men ... LOL. Most of Rick's advice I can't even mention all I can do is just shake me head.

As for fathers advice you know it's what a cherish. Being raised by a single dad for the first part of my life I have a lot of those great wisdoms. Most had to do with music ... LOL Must be why I love Classic Rock. Led Z. always brings a smile to face, hey dad took me to my laser show. What I was 5 it rocked and still does!
