Family valued

Grandchildren are the crown of aging. Parents are a source of pride for their children. Prov. 17:6

Members of functioning families view one another with pride and delight. We are glad to be related. Certainly everybody’s not perfect. Families have to opportunity to see one another at their worst; and yet we continually choose love, grace, trust, honor, hope and peace as relationship principles and family values.  We learn these values from our Father who values each of us so much. We belong. We are connected. We are accepted. And we welcome each new members with delighted open hearts, open minds, and open arms. The very thought of my children and grandchildren puts a smile on my face!

Lord, thank you for family today.
