a simple rule of life

An elderly woman I was talking to today was reminiscing about her childhood.

'I had a good father,' she said. 'There was only three things he insisted on: that we kept ourselves clean; did our school work; and said our prayers. He let us get on with the rest ourselves!'

I thought about what she had said.

'You know,' I replied, 'keep yourself clean, do your work, and say your prayers, giving glory to God in all you do, wouldn't be a bad rule of life for anyone whatever age they were.'

'That it wouldn't, father,' she agreed.
