Thoughts (See Bible Verses below)
A while ago, we were visiting my parents, and were expecting another one of my sisters along with her family to visit my parents that weekend as well. We waited in anticipation, and we heard the knock on the door – they had arrived! My little niece ran in first – we were all so overjoyed to see her! She looked so so cute in her new hairstyle, with all the cute ribbons in her hair! My mom had gone upstairs to get something, so she didn’t immediately realize they had arrived. My dad rushed upstairs to tell her – “They’re here! And Christie’s hair is all made up! They’re here!” My mom excitedly came down and we all enjoyed a wonderful time of love and fellowship with family.
I remember the pure joy on my dad’s face that day! Why were we all so excited over my niece’s hair that day? LOVE! It made me think again about how blessed we are to enjoy the love of family and friends!
The joy of fellowship with Family and Friends is a priceless and precious gift from God. Family and Love and Friendship all go hand in hand, and we do ourselves a great disservice if we take these priceless gifts for granted. Thank you Lord for the deep love of family and friends – in marriage, among siblings, parents, and children; among uncles and aunties, cousins, nieces and nephews; and among friends who have become family! Most of all Lord, thank you for the deep love of Family and Friendship with Jesus!
