" I Knew Two Brothers"

Once upon a time I knew two brothers and one was much older than the other.

The older  more like a dad than a brother,  cared for the younger like no other.

The older taught him to hunt, fish and play in the snow; they went together wherever he'd go.

They shared secrets dreamed and played and often life kept both quite dismayed.

They laughed and cried while tackling much together and sometime just a little afraid.

Once upon a time I knew two brothers; you see they both had the same mother.

This lady was treated bitterly herself as a child and grew this way as her style.

One stormy night she bitterly died and left all she had to the youngest that cried.

This lady lived her life of rage that finally became her legacy through all the age.

The younger took the small inheritance in a blast and saw the older gone quite fast.

Once upon a time I knew two brothers and one was much older than the other.

The older  more like a dad than a brother,  cared for the younger like no other.

Written by Bob Wood

 John 9: 1    And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.  2. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  3. Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

Parents effect a child's life from the moment of the thought of conception and that effect will be passed on for generations.   A parent that sows bitterness of the past to their children, really never learns of the love that could be shared.  I watched one night as a sow rejected and began killing her pigs as they were born.  I knew something bad had to be wrong with this sow.  Normally this sow would do it's best to hurt you, if you even acted like you would hurt one of her little pigs.  Something as well, is wrong with a parent that abuses their children.  This situation could be passed through all generations with no hope in sight but there is Good News.  Even if families are broken and abused; there is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother.  Jesus Christ will never leave nor forsake you.  He always sees the good in you.  He always forgives the bad in you.  Parents strive to love your children this way.  Pray to keep them together and to love each other.  As a parent we never really learn how but we are assured we will receive each day a lesson that can help us to improve.  Christ shows here that we can all have scars from our past effecting our present. He also shows that no matter what the sin or who is responsible; He can handle the job. He does not cause sin but often allows it to happen and if we will call on Him; He will change the whole situation. May God Really Bless You!   Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me.
