Kings and Princes

One of my church friends once gave me something she printed out for her family called “The 21 Rules of This House.” She had six children she was homeschooling. I like the rules and they hang near my kitchen sink where I study them while washing my dishes.

Today’s brief blog post covers rules 9 and 10:

9. When someone is sad, we comfort him,

10. When someone is happy, we rejoice with him.

Today is my father’s 80th birthday and I have certainly written a great many things about him in the past few weeks. I’ll probably write a great many things about him in the future. He has been a “king” in our family these four score years. God bless you, Dad.

Today would also be the birthday of a dear friend’s dad. He’s no longer here for my friend and maybe she’s sad today. I offer this small token of thoughtful comfort to her. Her dad was a prince of a guy and I miss him too.

For Kings and PrincesThis is for all the kings and princes today.
