Those are the people who will always be there, for you. As you go threw life, all the ups and most importantly, all the downs, those are the people who will be there for you. They will embrace you tight and wish you well, at the grandest of times, without hesitation of jealousy or envy, they are happy for you. They are the people who will acknowledge your pain, whether it is physical, mental or emotional, at the worst of times and embrace you just to say, they are there for you. There is an assortment of people under the family umbrella, just know that the one who is real family is the one that won’t matter if you are a blood relative or not, these people will be who you naturally are, family. You will find one left standing when they others walk away holding the umbrella high over their heads. True family or friend will weather the storm with you, hold your hand and validate you. Remember, anyone can assume their position in your life on the tree of unconditional love, but few will climb that tree to stay nearer to you, to be there in case you fall, again and again. There will be no judgement, no questions, just family, made especially for you by the Creator
The Family Is Divine in Purpose!!
“God created the family, and He has divine purposes for it. Following His purposes for marriage and family life gives us the best opportunities for family fulfillment.” – 1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith, denied the Creator and is worse than an unbeliever.
“Honesty and courage about acknowledging your faults will encourage others in the family both to understand you better and to talk freely about their shortcomings. In this sharing, we learn to love and help each other more beautifully than in a “closed circuit” situation. In Ephesians 4, we are exhorted to “be kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you Part of forgiveness, and part of genuine dialogue involves acceptance. The Father of the prodigal son accepted his boy completely, compassionately, joyfully. He expressed unconditional love. In true family dialogue, we do not expect perfection in the other, even as we know we are not perfect. Rather, we receive the other with sympathy and unconditional love. When a person finds that he is accepted, he is able to grow into an increasingly meaningful and strengthening dialogue.
So do not allow a wall to be built inside your house. Share your real feelings. Share your burdens. Share your needs. And share the emotions and burdens of everyone in your family. In doing so, you will build a family circle which cannot be broken.” – bible.ca
Hold closer those we call, family. They are the ones doing the work appointed to them by the Creator, as HE sees fit.
