Part 3 

I can still remember the fierce independence of the families I was boarded with as a child while my parents were on the road. They were country folks for the most part and could ill afford another mouth to feed, but few could resist the pleas of my mother and accepted the responsibility as just part of life’s requirement to help people that needed it.

Most of these folks left a permanent imprint on my world view, without my awareness of course, but there none the less, and what I remember most is the frugal life style and commitment to honesty and hard work. Their close family ties meant someone was always there in time of need, and their reliance on God was real and apparent in all their actions. The children were quite, well behaved, and the parents were loving and attentive. The evenings were spent with stories and reading from Scripture, and some even had a monopoly game. They made me feel at home.

Compare that lifestyle to today’s rat race of driving children to their government controlled schools, and racing off to work. There is little, if any time left in the average parent’s day for reflection on anything, and certainly not confronting anything serious like studying about how their country is going down the tubes.
