"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever." 1 Chronicles 16:34
Every day I feel blessed to have two families. My family at home, complete with extended relatives and friends
I consider family and my Holy Family "family" with whom I spend my days. I consider it an honor to have
known so many wonderful children and their parents, grandparents and siblings. For this blessing, I thank the
Lord, especially during this season of thanksgiving.
Whether you are spending this holiday with a family of thirty or dining around a small table, don't miss this
chance to reflect on the role family plays in your life. "A happy family is but an earlier heaven"- George
Bernard Shaw.
Heavenly Father, please shine your light upon my family. Give us strength to overcome all of the difficulties
that we sometimes face and protect us against any and all problems we may encounter in the future. O Lord,
please bring us together as we are meant to be. May the love that binds us only grow stronger as we fulfill the
destiny you have laid out for us.
Bless us Lord, in your name I pray, Amen
