Family. That word is so inclusive. A family in it's smallest form is a man and a woman who are married to one another. Then it grows as they have children. The family increases as those children have children who marry and establish families of their own. We have more family than we sometimes realize. God is truly our Father in Heaven. We are all brothers and sisters in the family of God. Some people give too much time and energy to the family of God and neglect their own children. Some give their children all their time and attention and therefore neglect their husband or wife. The way to happiness is to Love your father in heaven above all else and then to love and serve your wife or husband and then your children and then the family extends out from there. The word family includes everyone really. Heavenly father does want us to set priorities in regard to the order that we place in serving and taking care of our extensive and unending family. It is interesting to me that Jesus taught that pure religion was to visit the fatherless and widows. In those situations there is something missing in the immediate family that needs to be filled and addressed. If the whole world was composed of Families where husbands and wives loved one another and took care of their children in a loving way this world would almost be a perfect place. This world is not a perfect place however and that is why we are all family. We all need each other in the great big family of God.
I just want to say family, that I am here for you.
I hope that you have a wonderful day!
