What Really Makes Up A True Family...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog

Gathering together...
Some of those in our families have seen so many Thanksgivings,
Some newbies are just about to experience their first one.
(They have those little bibs that say Baby's First Christmas)
Where are the ones that say
"First Thanksgiving"

We have such a different array of family members;
Young and Old
Strong and Feeble
Beauty and Bronze
Male and Female
Funny and Serious
Goofy and Refined
Saved and Not Saved


Some are very colorful;
We struggle with these ones as let's just say they don't look
The way we look...
They are always trying to give us all a little bit of that thing called
~Shock Therapy~
Very colorful hair, tattoos that we have a hard time reading
A comic book of sorts, it is rather hard to read an arm!
Really, you all know who we are talking about!
Remember under it all they are part of your family.
Sometimes we just need to get over it.
Don't react to their form of look at me syndrome.



Let's face it, we all have those that are just turkeys;
A bit goofy...
They say things that make your head just lean to one side!
A little bit not with it of sorts, but nice in a way.
~Maybe they are just lonely and do not have many friends~
I think I heard them called; What is referred to as a goober...
They may have been talking about me, not sure though!




Well any way you slice it, you share something in common!
DNA
Marriage
Adoption
Friends so long they have grown up together!
Grafted In The Family!
The Family Of God!

God has said He sets the lonely in the families...

Families depend on one another for their identity and joy.
Both young and old should cherish their inter-generational relationships.

Someone to HUG
Someone to TALK TO and someone to LOVE...

Proverbs 17:6

"God Bless Everyone"

  1. I guess that's what makes a family, differing personalities, differing amounts of "crazy" (depending on your point of view!). It's important to just love them all, forgive them, and be welcoming. Thanks for the reminder Roxy.

  2. Beautifully stated and so true. Gotta love 'em. I know God put me in a family at a very lonely time of life, for which I'm always grateful.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Roxy!
    I wonder if you are familiar with the blog Keeper of the Homestead (keeperofthehomestead(dot)com)? I think it is a blog you would really enjoy and relate to.
    God bless you and your family.

  9. Variety is the spice of life isn't it my friend? Wouldn't it be a boring world if we were all alike? And we wouldn't have a thing to roll our eyes, shrug our shoulders, or snicker at. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    hugs,
    Jann
