We are family

When Jesus saw his mother standing there beside the disciple he loved, he said to her, “Dear woman, here is your son.” And he said to this disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from then on this disciple took her into his home. Jn. 19:27-28. Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord; also his mother, who has been a mother to me as well. Rom. 16:13

Sometimes God puts together people who aren’t related and makes them family. There are mothers who need children and children who need mothers. And an extra mother or child never hurts either.

Lord, thanks for the family you’ve formed for me.
