Dear Son,

It’s been a while I have written to you but your old man got caught up in a lot of things – both exciting and not so good for the ear to hear. I think this will form a strong basis for this letter and I hope the letters I have written to you in the past has been helpful because you will sometimes forget to apply those things- however, you will always find your way back.

Son, life is going to be full of challenges. As much as we keep prophesying a year free of challenges at every new year eve, challenges are inevitable. This world is not made to be your fantasy; everyone has areas they feel pain and this will lead me to say this.

Treat people with kindness, as you never know what they are going through. Click To Tweet

Son, I have been through my challenges and I am still going through some. I have battled with a lot-within and out of my control- but in all these, I realize that after one storm is over, another one comes. What I need you to know is that your satisfaction will only be found in God and God alone will be able to  satisfy you.

Remember this. It will save you a lot of heart aches and head aches.

Trust your old man, I have experienced all these. And I am still here.

I look forward to the man you would become.

I love you.
