Roots and wings

Long ago I bought a stitchery kit with the following message: "There are two lasting gifts we can give our children—one is roots, the other wings."

If we think of "roots" as the foundation that supports all one's activity, we will pay close attention to how our children establish the roots, or foundation, for their lives—what examples are set for them, how they think about themselves and others, what they value and appreciate. We will want to guide them in developing moral and spiritual values that reflect an awareness of their relationship to God and recognize the security and strength of roots planted in spiritual ground.
