To my Sons Your Farthers Instructions

The words I give you are sound
They have been my comfort
They have been my companion
This is Protocol never be anxious 
Be Slow to speak and quick to listen
And when in doubt, wait and think about it
Always respond and never react to a crisis
Never panic always remain the Master of your emotions
Guard your heart with all cost
Beware of Cupids Arrow
And the fiery darts of Satan
Hunt and gather and always remember
A wise son prepares for the winter
What is sought in a man is kindness
Never correct a scoffer less he hates you
Let no man take advantage of your sister
And the day will come listen
When Satan comes against you
Go into war as an Appache Warrior
Learn how to step quietly when Leaves are under your feet
Inside the Forest
And when you speak, speak as an oracle of God
Be thankful always
And be generous to those less fortunate
Collect and share knowledge
Theres not a man alive who knows everything
be aware, be careful
Don't listen to lips that flatter
Men are full of evil
They won't sleep until they seek your blood
And this Rainbow of Faith that I place over you
Remember God is real
And the only proof of his exsistence is the Devil
God is everlasting Love and tender Mercies
HE says " I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy
and I will harden whom I will harden"
Yes my Sons God gives and He takes away
He tests the heart of men
Men may do you evil, but God will mean it for your good
Fear no man, no not even the devil
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom
Listen to that still small voice
For it is His guidance
And there is no need to fear the unknown 
For it is God Almighty who leads you into new directions
Be humble for you are my seed
Never follow another if he trys to lead you
If a man ask you to run a mile with him run two
The enemy sits and waits to twist your words
And we all make mistakes
Sit quietly when you suffer defeats
Learn from them and you will be a fine Leader
If you tell afriend I'm coming over tomorrow
Do everything in your power to arrive at the decided hour
And yes! it is always better late than never
Take cuation no man knows when his end will come
Wisdom says take heed to my words
For they will prolong your life on earth
A man has said it is better safe than sorry'
Well the one speaking says " If it ain't worth it don't take the risk"
And when a good woman is in an impossible situation
Come quick and never tarry
Boast to no one
For it is a matter of discretion
Respect Authurity
For your Freedom is worth more than a Kings ransom
Be ready to answer any man who questions you
Just be aware he is trying to trip you with his words
Violence should always be your last resort
Im telling you you must really be creative
God is not a deadend 
He is the way out of them

    Even though I've never met you, I am so proud of you, Timothy! And your son is lucky to have you. This is a gift to last a lifetime....God bless! Don't forget to pray with him and for him. As you already know, this journey is long and treacherous. Happy New Year to you and yours. Here's wishing you the best in the coming year! Always, Annalise
