For my sons…love is unconditional…


I see men struggle…putting too much faith in what they do and forgetting just simply who they are.  They are loved…just for being themselves.  Unconditionally.

I have two boys….one is almost 22…My “Man” and yet…he’s working hard on his identity.

The second is 11 and a new middle schooler…My other “Man”  Still innocent and full wonder…it will tested just like his older brothers.

What I want them and other men just like them to know….

Love is Unconditional.

  • Not what you do
  • Not what you’ve accomplished
  • Not who you hang out with
  • Not your grades
  • Not how well you do your job

We all slip and fall…make mistakes…and struggle through our learning curves…it’s ok.  

Jars of Clay have a great little song called Boys (Lesson One)

Take a listen…the lyrics are to follow.  Know…you are loved…just the way you are.  No need to hide from that…ever!  It’s a baseline to start all other endeavors!  I know there are many!  Men are our hero’s and protectors.  The ones that charge forward..fearlessly.  Just remember…the Baseline!

Lesson one – do not hide

Lesson two – there are right ways to fight
And if you have questions
We can talk through the night

So you know who you are
And you know what you want
I’ve been where you’re going
And it’s not that far
It’s too far to walk
But you don’t have to run
You’ll get there in time

Lesson three – you’re not alone
Not since I saw you start breathing on your own
You can leave, you can run, this
Will still be your home

So you know who you are
And you know what you want
I’ve been where you’re going
And it’s not that far
It’s too far to walk
But you don’t have to run
You’ll get there in time
Get there in time

In time, to wonder where the days have gone
In time, to be old enough to
Wish that you were young
When good things are unraveling,
Bad things come undone
You weather love and lose your innocence

There will be liars and
Thieves who take from you
Not to undermine the consequence
But you are not what you do
And when you need it most
I have a hundred reasons why I love you

If you weather love and lose your innocence
Just remember – lesson one
