The Gift of Family
From the comfort of the womb to a cold sterile room,
Into the loving arms of my family
As a child oh so shy, learning not to tell a lie,
Sheltered by hugs of a family
As a teen in high school, hoping to be so cool,
Grounded by the love of my family.
Leaving to spread my wings, trying lots of different things,
Tethered by the love of my family.
Finding my true love, being sealed by the “Dove” above,
Wanting to start my own family.
Each gift from above, will find Truth and Love,
In the wide-open arms of a family.
May we see it as grace, that we may see His face
As we share His sweet love with our family.
Love one another as I have loved you. John 15:12
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of family. We praise you for parents who selflessly gave of themselves for our benefit. We thank you for siblings that kept us in check. We thank you for relatives that ran interference when necessary, and genuinely loved us. We thank you for guiding us through the hills and valleys of life, and for the angels you sent to protect us. Please preserve the precious gift of family so that every child may know the love of a mother and father, and the blessing of siblings. We ask this, in Your most precious name. Amen.
May Peace, Joy, and Love flourish in your families,
Ponder, pray, and give thanks for the gift of family. Pass it on!
