Families Of One

Posted: February 14, 2016 by CatholicJules in Meditations

Genesis 12:2, 13:16

I will make you a great nation ; I will bless you and make your name so famous that it will be used as a blessing. I will make your descendants like the the dust on the ground too many to count.

These were the words spoken to Father Abraham. And while I possess a tiny fraction of his faith. I marvel at what the Lord has done in my own life.

He has blessed me with a wonderful family. A blessed family of my very own. A church family and many small communities that have become family.

All this came to be when I said Yes to His call. His call to be with Him and His family. There are indeed difficulties and challenges but He has been with me every step of the way.

I thank You Lord for opening my eyes to see the marvels You have worked in my life. I thank You for the gift of my family and ever growing extended family. Help me to draw them ever closer to You. Amen
