Honoring your Parents

Ephesians 6: 1-3
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

This past week we took a flower arrangement to my grandfather (my father's father) and grandmother's (my father's mother) graves. My father does this every year, usually on Flag day- the day that Paw Paw was buried. This year Sam, Lane, and I went along....I wanted to share a sweet conversation that Pal and Sam had that I thought was a perfect example of a living Bible lesson. Sam asked Pal why we were doing what we were, and Pal responded with the above scripture and explained that it was an example of honoring your father and mother. Sam thought a moment and then said, "So one day Pal when I am like 100 and you die, I will put flowers on your grave?!"
Such a childlike sweetness

I almost started blubbering when I read the post... I would have never made it out there with y'all. The whole thing makes me sob almost instantly.
