Life's Rodeo For Jay
I will help you rodeo, Son, and name you as Champion
in the arena of life. I am your father and will give you strength.
You will only rodeo one circuit that will span all your tomorrows.
Every event is open to you. May you enter those which will reward
you with the greatest satisfaction and self-esteem.
You'll work with truly great chute help, consisting
of Honesty, Loyalty, Devotion to Duty, Self Respect, Cleanliness,
Good Behavior, and Courage. Your pick up men have great reputations
also, for they are Faith, Hope and Charity.
In this rodeo you will go by ten rules which you
know as the Ten Commandments, and you will follow in accordance
with your own faith. There is also one important ground rule to
obey " Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
The buzzer at the end of your ride will open
the Gates of Heaven, where God sits as Judge, Flagman and Timekeeper.
I will open the chute gate. You will ride the
wild stock of life into the arena of years. It will try to throw
you, and probably will more than once, but when the dust has settled
I will see you climb aboard once more to ride to a good finish.
Hold on Son, - Give it all you've got, and lets
see what you can do with it.
