Life Lessons Learned from my Parents

This article first appeared on Doing Life Together.

Mom and Dad

My parents on their wedding day, 1951.

Mom passed away in 2004, Dad in 2013. I miss them every day.

In this season between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, I would like to honor my parents by enumerating the ways they made me what I am.

My parents taught me:

To work hard. Whatever chores they assigned me, I was expected to do them well, without complaining, and be happy that I was contributing to my family. (I often disappointed them by not complying with the no complaining and happiness stipulations.) My father worked long hours and sometimes worked a second job to support our family. He worked so hard at his baking job that he eventually became a partner in the business.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him (Psalm 103:13).

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate (Psalm 127:4-5 NIV).
