Parents' Longest Term Project - Steve Wickham 

 

A THIRTEEN YEAR OLD girl, whose parents separated when she was five, was asked, "Why don't you want your mother to get married again?" "I just want mum and dad back together, not married to other people," she said. Given that her father had married again over four years previously, she must have doubted the realism of her innermost desire.

Yet, she still clung to what seemed an impossible hope.

She got on with both her stepmother and stepfather and was otherwise happy.

What does this say for the innate yearning of children to have their parents together and happy - happily together?

1. Where there's vision, commitment has motive

Vision is an astounding thing, providing possibility in the mind where all sorts of impossibility may surround.

Vision goes before faith. It motivates two persons, in the midst of marriage, to dig in, despite their differences and unrequited longings. It provides long-term hope, notwithstanding the short term pain of dealing with what seems to be irreconcilable differences.

Where there is vision, commitment has a motive, and where there is commitment, there is hope. And hope fuels faith, which delivers the vision.

2. Where there's commitment, there's hope

No marriage can survive without hope. We are all human beings and we all need hope. Everything else could be stripped away, but our hope remains as a testament to our hearts' longing for contentment within a life that God promises so much through.

Commitment is the arms and legs of faith; the muscles of which are fuelled by this hope. Where two partners remain committed, the marriage could withstand almost anything.

Commitment is the enduring key and the key to endurance.

If, on the other hand, commitment has waned in one or both, the short-term vision of happiness now blocks sight of the longer term vision - a much more important one - an enduring one.

Decades of future regret can be annulled before it arrives by dual commitments to each other made now.

3. What is hope for a parent, is hope for a child

Could there ever be a parent who would want to cause their child harm? No mentally healthy parent could desire that.

Marriages that stay together produce children who are no doubt happier. There is no contending struggle, for want of mum and dad to 'get back together.'

If a parent can hope for a happy life, one bonded to their marriage partner, the parent provides hope for their child. This hope endures a lifetime, often beyond.

A parent's longest term and most important project is their children. Nothing can substitute two committed parents, or at least one, and better again if both parents stay together and work together.

Children's deepest desire is to have their parents stay together. Wherever there is enough vision for a good marriage, and the commitment and character to get there, the children are blessed never more.

Last week I took my children to a restaurant 

Last week I took my children to a restaurant. My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good. God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen."

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice-cream! Why, I never! "Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?" As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer." "Really?" my son asked. "Cross my heart."

Then in a theatrical whisper he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My son stared at his for a moment and then did something I will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and without a word walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes, and my soul is good already

A young couple  

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood.

The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman watched her neighbor hanging wash outside.

“That laundry is not very clean,” she said.

”She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband,

“Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.”

The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others may depend on the purity of the window through which we look.

I'm blessed indeed. The world is mine!  

 

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

 

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked. "No", she replied. "He's out." "Then we cannot come in", they replied.

 

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in.

 

"We do not go into a House together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

 

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

 

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?" Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"

 

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite Love to be our guest." The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

 

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

 

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!"

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine 

Today upon a bus, I saw a lovely maid with golden hair.

I envied her - she seemed so happy -

and wished I were as fair.

When suddenly she arose to leave,

I saw the cruel braces as she hobbled down the aisle;

a victim of polio was she.

But as she passed -- a smile!

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I have two straight feet. The world is mine!

 

And then I stopped to buy some sweets.

The lad who sold them had such charm.

I talked with him. He said to me, "It's nice

to talk with folks like you. You see," he said,

"I'm blind." Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I have two eyes. The world is mine!

 

Then walking down the street,

I saw a child with eyes of blue.

He stood and watched the others play.

It seemed he knew not what to do.

I stopped a moment, then I said,

"Why don't you join the others, dear?"

He looked ahead without a word

and then I knew.... He could not hear.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I have two ears. The world is mine!

 

With feet to take me where I'd go,

with eyes to see the sunset's glow;

with ears to hear what I would know --

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

The mouse and the trap 

 

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. What food might this contain?" The mouse wondered - he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning. There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!"

 

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it."

 

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!" The pig sympathized, but said, "I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers."

 

The mouse turned to the cow and said "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!" The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse. I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin off my nose." So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mousetrap alone.

 

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house -- like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer's wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup's main ingredient.

 

But his wife's sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer's wife did not get well; she died. So many people came for her funeral; the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

 

The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.


So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think that it does not concern you, remember that when the least of us is threatened, we are all at risk.

Two Trees, a Forest and a Storm 

The Chinese have a greeting which goes ‘may you live in interesting times’. Somebody must have said that to me because I am witnessing some of the most interesting times. I am witnessing a series of events that are proving to be more entertaining than the best Hollywood and Nollywood can offer.

Since these events have been more of a case of life imitating art, I feel that I should also go poetic.

I am in a forest with many trees and all of a sudden I find myself watching a comedy of a tiny desperate tree that is shedding crocodile tears over a fruit from the mightiest Iroko tree. Both the tiny tree and the fruit from the Iroko tree have agendas that set them at cross purposes but both think they can use the other. The tiny tree wants nourishment from the fruit of the Iroko tree in order that it might become as big as the Iroko tree. The fruit thinks it is ripe and wants the tiny tree to rock the forest so that it can be detached from the parent tree and fall to the ground where its seeds will germinate in the fertile soil. It also imagines that it will become a great tree.

But what the tiny tree and the fruit it wants to suck on for nourishment do not realize is that fruits that are ripe will fall to the ground at the slightest breeze from God. As for the tiny tree, in its eagerness to cheat nature it forgets that the juice from one tree may nourish it for a day but it requires regular daily nourishment to grow into a big tree. If its roots do not reach far into the grounds it can never get the nourishment it needs. A nourishment that is daily available to the big Iroko tree.

And so the comedy continues and I keep watching. I see the unripe fruit condemning the Iroko tree that has given it nourishment to the tiny tree and I wonder at its naivety. How can a fruit condemn its tree to a shrub and expect the shrub to treat the fruit better than the tree that gave birth to it?

Does this fruit have memory at all? The spirits that ensure the codes of the forest are obeyed had once told the Iroko that it (the Iroko tree) is the source of the nutrients that nourish its fruits and that since that is the case the previous fruit in the place of the ambitious fruit could not lay claim to the nourishment and should thus shrivel away and give way to the ambitious fruit. Being that that is the case, should the fruit bite the tree that nourishes it? Who is the ultimate loser in this comedy if I may ask?

As I watched on I saw that the desperation of the tiny tree and the ambitious fruit of the Iroko tree grew such that they hatched a plan to get the monkeys in the forest to throw stones at the Iroko tree. And so the stone throwing began. The monkeys threw stones and more stones and as they threw stones a little bird flew past and whispered to them the following words ‘the Iroko tree is not upset when monkeys throw stones at it. It takes it as a compliment because nobody throws stones at a tree without fruit’.

And when the monkeys heard this, they reasoned amongst themselves that the bird’s saying was true and they sought to make a deal with the Iroko tree so that it would lower its branches in order that they could climb onto it and pluck some fruit. But the Iroko tree ignored them.

Then they said to the Iroko tree, ‘we would help you destroy the tiny tree if you will only lower your branches’. The Iroko Tree spoke for the first time and responded thus ‘why should you destroy the tiny tree? Leave it alone. I am not in competition with other trees, I am in competition with my potential. It is only those without potential that compete with those with potential in the same way as a blind man follows a man with sight’.

The monkeys saw the wisdom in this logic and left the Iroko tree and I kept on watching because the comedy was so engaging. I had never seen anything of the sort.
Pretty soon the clouds above the forest became grey and it was clear that a heavy storm was approaching. All the animals in the forest began to seek for shelter from the storm. I saw the birds and the monkeys and the elephants and the deer and the antelopes and the warthogs and all their fellow forest dwellers running to and fro seeking shelter.

‘Where shall we shelter’ they said, ‘who will save us from the coming storm’? They ran to the tiny tree but it had little room and could not shelter everybody. Then they ran to the Iroko tree and it sheltered everybody under its branches.

Finally, the storm hit. It brought with it lightning and thunder, rain and more rain but the forest animals were not affected. They were safe under the Iroko tree. And what was more, I beheld a wonderful thing. The storm caused the ripe fruits from the Iroko tree to fall to the ground to the great pleasure of the forest animals whose hunger was quenched thereby.

That storm taught the forest animals a great life lesson which is that in times of storms, you cannot shelter under tiny trees. The tiny tree itself also learnt a lesson from the storm which is that a fruit that will not fall under a storm is a fruit that is not ripe for plucking. And finally, the ambitious fruit learnt its lesson which is that it is a tree that nourishes a fruit and not a fruit that nourishes the tree.

And after everybody had learnt their lessons, the forest animals and all the trees in the forest lived happily ever after.
