Family Matters



She became a wife at the young age of eighteen.
Just as she held me then, she holds me now.
Her strong faith has always kept me focused, even in the darkest times.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs at the days to come.
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and on her tongue is kindly counsel.
She watches the conduct of her household, and eats not her food in idleness.
Her children rise up and praise her; her husband, too, extols her:
"Many are the women of proven worth, but you have excelled them all." ~Proverbs 31:26-29



We have shared many cups of tea throughout the years.
He was never to tired for me then, he is never to tired for me now.
His love shaped my life.
Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name. ~William Wordsworth
They created many memories then....
They create them now.

With hair of silver and hearts of gold,
 they laugh with us,
they cry with us,
they pray with us,
because they know just how much family matters.

God made us a  family.
We need one another.
We love one another.
We forgive one another.
We work together.
We play together.
We worship together.
Together we use God's word.
Together we grow in Christ.
Together we love all people.
Together we serve our God.
Together we hope for heaven.
These are our hopes and ideals.
Help us to attain them,
O God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

May God  bless each member of your families today and always........
