You get it from your Father,
It is all he had to give.

So it's yours to use and cherish
as long as you shall live.

If you loose the watch he gave you,
It can always be replaced.

But a black mark on your Name, Son,
Can never be erased.

It was clean the day you took it,
A worthy Name to bear.

When he got it from his Father,
There was no dishonor there.

So make sure you guard it wisely and
When all is said and done.

You'll be glad your Name is spotless when
You give it to your Son.          

Lifes Priorities

"Imagine life as a game in which you arejuggling some five balls in
the air. 

You name them - work, family, health, friends and spirit
and you're keeping all of these in the air. 

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. 

If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit - are
made of glass. 

If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably
scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. 

They will never be the same. 

You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.
