During our lives we consider families to be anyone who is blood relation to be our family. But what is a family? It may be friends that we have known since our grade school or high school years. We share our celebrations and our sorrows with them. Our health concerns. Our spiritual and material longings. Children. Grandchildren. Caring for each other in big and small ways.
“For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name…” Ephesians 3:14-15
We support each other in our endeavors. We go to hear gospel and clap along with cousins- by- marriage in a gospel quartet the Conquerors.
We connect together in families – even when we are not a traditional family. What makes a family? Shared memories and making new ones together with people – blood relations or not.
Happy Thanksgiving! Make some memories!
