How important is family?
The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron; he will bless those who fear the Lord, both the small and the great. May the Lord give you increase, you and your children! May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth!
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
That they may know that you alone, whose name is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.
Family is important! There are times that family are the only ones that will fill in for God to be that human touch, that listening ear and that loving voice and will say “it will be okay”. Family can come in many shapes, sizes, colors and nationalities. Family can be blood or not. Their only specification is that they love you unconditionally! No strings attached, just unconditional love!
Thank you Lord for putting those people in my life that I would gladly call “FAMILY”! Love and blessings to them all! Amen!
