TITLE: Greatly Apparent

Being a great parent is not so greatly apparent!
A parent is not perfect: sometimes we're errant...
We're "forever" learning things that are not inherent:
The best thing we can do is be honest and transparent.

Children are God's way of teaching us to have great faith,
Because a child will completely trust what a parent will say!
Unconditional love flows in the innocence of childhood:
A child must be trained with God's love to be understood.

How does God the Father treat me? that's how I should treat my child.
I strive every day to please my Jesus: I want to make Him smile!
A child needs the same thing: to love and to be loved and accepted--
As a child of God, a parent should always do what's expected.

In the end, my friend, becoming a parent is not apparent overnight:
It's a process of learning from mistakes, and leaning on Christ.
