I am so thankful for Parents that loved the Lord and showed it by attending the Church every time the Church doors were open. They wanted the best for their children as they taught us the Biblical Principles that we could achieve our potential. They knew Deuteronomy 6:7  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. They trained us up as Proverbs 22:6 states Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Ellis, Lowell, Anna Lee and I many times had to be reminded to obey our Parents or we got the rod of correction that bought us back to reality we could not disobey but needed to know how to love to please and bless our parents and those in authority over us. 
Our Parents knew how to provide for us as 2 Corinthians 12:14 says, Behold the third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be burdensome to you, for I seek not yours, but you; for the Children ought to not lay up for the Parents, but the Parents for the Children. Our Dad during the second world war when to work in the Ship Yards in Bremerton, WA. and Portland Oregon with his brother Archie.  He always bought us all a gift and it was a delightful time. 
We know what it was like to have rationing and got our own name on the amount we could have. So we learned to restrain ourselves and not steal. We learn now to share and be polite to one another at all time regardless of the circumstances.
Our Parents knew how to nurture us as Ephesians 6:4 tells us And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. We know what it was to be persuaded to do what was right by a rod of correction not an Iron rod or a 2x4 but small switch or belt, even by hand on the bottom, never leaving a mark but a love of being disciplined by loving parents. Today we are not seeing discipline in the homes, Schools or business.Then we had Parents that were in Control of our behavior and attitudes as 2 Timothy 3:1-7 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a [a]bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not [b]given to wine, not violent, [c]not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not [d]covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a [e]novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Our Parents were not Bishops or preachers, but in control of their home and we enjoyed what we had and where able to do. We were not rich, but had everything we needed to enjoy life for we knew the Lord personally at a very young age, learning to be content in whatsoever we had.
Our home was a home full of love that not only we felt, but all who came into our Home felt as well. Relatives stopped in many times and enjoyed mom’s cooking and Hospitality. Mom was a Mother that loved the Lord and had an, open clothes closet and coming home from School many times she would be in the Closet praying. We have prayers before meals and before bed time and grew up around prayer.

 Titus 2: 1-5 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
We Knew what it was like to be surrounded by the Love of the Lord for our parents lived as Ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and we learned the value of Christian Parents, for we saw parents that were not Christians at all and then we were ashamed of how many acted toward their children and toward others. It seemed like we knew Christians by the way they acted and behaved in who they worshiped, reverenced, had hope and faith in to answer their prayers. We saw by people souls five senses rather they were follower of God or Follower of Satan by their imaginations, conscience, memory, reason and affections. We did not go to movies, dances, drink or smoke for the simple reason it did not make our parents happy if we did and certainly God our Father did not approve of the addictions of Satan and his host.
We grew up having uncles in world war 1 and 2 and know how to pray and see our parents send them gifts and Machetes’ to cut through the jungles. We experience them coming back and they did not like to talk about their experiences and no one we knew had Post Traumatic Stress. They know how to take all their concerns to the Lord and they were blest from having served our country. Our Dad Said he felt the soldiers need battle Ships to win the war, he did all he could with his brother to assist in making Battle Ships for our soldiers.
As a family we meet with Dads Brother and Moms Family and our cousins for gatherings at our home or in the Mountains at Clear LakeRim Rock, America Falls Twin Bridges and other areas and had many memorial experiences, fishing, camping and hiking. So I can never remember a time when it was not enjoyable, but nothing but clean fun.
Our parents always attended Church and Revival service and we know what it was like to see Oral Roberts in the Fair Grounds in Yakima under a tent and saw many miracles as teen agers setting up close to see for ourselves Goiters disappear and the lame healed and crutches thrown away, so when Oral Roberts left he had a Sim Truck full of crutches and wheel chairs. What a sight to see.
We saw David Wilkerson at Ike and AA Allen at the Yakima Fair Grounds where many people came to know the Lord. It was a privilege to have parents who wanted us to enjoy the presence of the Lord and as we got older we attended the Billy Graham Service at the Kingdom in Seattle and when he was in Portland Oregon and Tacoma when we pastored Onalaska, WA. To see the power of the church never grew dim for it was a place we could worship, reverence, have hope and faith to pray for one another to encourage us to witness for the Lord.
