As I am writing posts today, I am keeping close to my sick kiddo. So many bugs are going around, who really knows which one he has. He kept me up most of the night tossing and turning, and the “cuddles” he wanted were more like a spinning, sweaty tornado.
However as I sipped my cup of coffee this morning, all I felt was blessed. Blessed that I had a kiddo to watch over. My husband and I were unable to have children for 14 years. We became just two old shoes who answered each other’s sentences. And now we are a trio of endless possibilities!
Family for me is more than what is in these four walls. It extends to an amazing extended family that is a support system I wouldn’t do without. It also includes a network of friends, co-workers, church members, and more.
Mostly I feel blessed to be part of the family of God. John 1:12 reads “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” Being a child of God is the greatest family to be a part of. I know that it gives me hope for something greater.
Joy in family is found in the day-to-day reminders of what God gives us here on earth through the path he has created for each of us. However, the greatest family joy comes from being a part of the family of God.
Take each day to enjoy your loved ones and take time each day to spend time with God studying his word.
