YOUR CHILDREN

     THE ARCHER

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The Archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.”  The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

To me this means that we raise our children with love and do our best to set them on the right path for their highest good. Allow them to make their own mistakes loving them anyway. In their efforts to establish themselves as independent, they may seem to veer away from the path. Love them anyway. They will inevitably set up their values and their own paths.

In the picture below I see the freedom and joy that we want to give our children.
