Mr. P is teaching Gerry how to shingle a roof.
As I was working in the kitchen I looked out my window and I saw this most wonderful sight... my two favorite guys working side by side. The proud wife/mama in me just had to sneak out and take a picture to capture the moment! Mr. P's father taught him the skill of carpentry and now Mr. P is teaching our son. More importantly than that, Mr. P has taught him how to be a man of great character, strength and integrity. I know that one day my son will pass this on to his son, as well. Whether we realize it or not, what we do today can greatly impact future generations. This impact can be felt through words (spoken and unspoken) as well as deeds (done and undone.) What a tremendous responsibility and privilege God has given each of us!
Hands are a bond between father and son
A tool that one teaches the other to use
Needing to pass on the passion, or lose
Doing what long generations have done
Sowing the seeds of what they have begun.
