"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." ~ John W. Whitehead ~

"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure." 
~ Emma Goldman ~
"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."

You can leave your kids

"Do not handicap your children by making their lives easier." ~ Robert A. Heinlein ~
"The most important thing that parents can teah their children is how to get along without them."
 ~ Frank A. Clark ~
"It is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings." ~ Ann Landers ~
"A baby will make love stronger, 
days shorter, 
nights longer, 
bankroll smaller, 
home happier, 
clothes shabbier, 
the past forgotten, 
and the future worth living for."
~ unknown
"What's done to children, they will do to society." ~ Karl Menninger ~
"I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it." ~ Harry S. Truman ~
"To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today." ~ unknown ~
"When you teach your son, you teach your son's son." ~ The Talmud ~
"Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation." ~ C. Everett Koop ~

"See what great love the Father has lavished on us 
that we should be called the children of God."
~ I John 3:1

Prayer Keeping ~ Maxine ~ Kurt ~ Joshua ~ Emily ~ silent requests ~ Sandra ~ 


  1. I have a great niece in Calif. who will turn one in Jan. She is growing up in such different times than we did.

    Keeping you in my heart and prayers. Enjoy your day.

  2. I love these quotes and they turn my heart to my own children and grandchildren. Thank you so much for sharing. Please pray for my son Joshua who is a senior in high school that he will make good decisions about his future and my granddaughter Emily who has Juvenile Arthritis. Thank you.

  3. Hello on Sunday, Sandra! I hope all is well at the farm.

  4. I pray for my children and grandchildren everyday. It is a different world to day than when we were young. Blessings- xo Diana

  5. Very inspiring post and creative photo ~ carol ^_^
    (A Creative Harbor) ~
    thanks for 'visiting'

  6. "It is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings." ~ Ann Landers ~ ...This quote in particular stuck out to me as I read down over them. I think it is because it is basically the way we raised our children and now they are responsible adults, raising their own children in the same fashion. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Mildred, I fear for our country and our children.

    Deb, your children were put on the prayer list, hope things are better.

    Karen, all is well, thanks.

    Diana, the power a praying mother gives her children can't be calculated this side of the veil.

    Carol, how nice to see you again, welcome.

    Dianna, that was a great quote it does produce responsible adults and citizens.


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
