My heart is tender toward our family, Becky and our four children specifically, because of an unfortunate situation here in our neighborhood. I feel strongly about stating the fact that the time we spend together as families is a real thing. It should be something that we do because we want to strengthen family relationships and we want those relationships to be the greatest ones we have. You never know what tomorrow will bring. I'm not saying that we ever live in fear that something expected may happen rather be prepared so that when something does happen our relationships are strong and intact.
I have receieved a clear reminder of this while making a couple of good visits this evening. Becky and I sat and visited with our children and put our arms around them and expressed our love for them.
Take the time to let your family know that you care about them. Make sure that they know of your sincere feelings for them.
I am grateful for this life. It is well worth living for and the various things that I learn are molding me into the person I am supposed to become.
We are all important in the sight of a loving Father. He understands what we think and how we feel. He is very close by and will help us with anything. We just need to ask and He will give us answers to those pleas.
Thank Him for all that you have and find contentment in the joys of this mortal journey. In the end we will be grateful for the endurance that is required of us and the patience we will have learned will be beneficial to us throughout eternity.
Life is worth living. Life yields grand rewards even through the trials that we are required to overcome. The eternal award awaits us so lets give our all and do our very best!
