Psalm 127:4, 5 says: “Like arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the sons of youth. Happy is the able-bodied man that has filled his quiver with them.”

Children are like arrows and their parents are the warriors. With practice and experience an archer hits the cherry successfully but not without errors...As a parent, I realize that child rearing is not a happy-go lucky thing. I'd want my kids to reach a “target”—a fulfilling life as happy, responsible adults. I want them to make good choices, to be wise and avoid needless problems, and to achieve worthwhile goals. For the meantime I let them be kids...I think it comes down to a happy childhood too how they turn out later on. :)

Yet I keep in mind Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a boy according to the way for him; even when he grows old he will not turn aside from it."

The cherry trees are blooming by the way.
