Birthday Boy 2013

lighthouse on rock

My son: you make me proud when I see you
Growing into a man. Such things must be.
So grow! Be strong! And trust your heart to few
Because but few will mean you well, you see.
But God will guide your steps – if you let Him.
Just ask Him to. He will wisdom provide
Beyond your years to find the path when dim
All seems and darkness tries the truth to hide.
Christ is our Rock – if but on Him we stand:
Public opinions do not own our minds
Nor short-term pleasures clog our thoughts like sand
Clogs moving-parts. We are by God designed
For higher things, and for a better place
Than this old world: where we dwell for a space.
