 Reflections of My Heart

Family Is Family ~ We Are As One

 Family Is Family

 We Are As One

 So many before us have gone
but the memories remain so fresh
We all came from the same tree
we are all of one flesh.

It was by God's hand
we were all brought together
To love and support
as did our elders.

Not a single one
was left ungathered
The pure love shared
was all that mattered

There were and are
disagreements between all
But that is not a reason
to let the family fall

We are not all the same
with different ways and needs
But never should we resort
To the casting out deed

Each one of us were placed
for our own specific reason
The family bond and love
is never for just a season

It has to pass all tests of time
with pure forgiveness and love
As we all have been taught
by our Heavenly Father above

Nothing we can do
should sever the bond
We all make mistakes
and step beyond

But that is when love
is needed the most
Just pull them back in
being a family host

Many can spew vicious words
With a lying sharp tongue
When they should choose silence
and join the family as one

It is not you that casts them out
It is them that they remove
Family does not test
or need to be approved.

By word it can not be deemed
that family is cast out
Our precious Savior placed us
and that you can have no doubt.

The family cannot die
Just because our parents did.
It truly takes a village
To raise just one kid

So hearts need to be softened
and grudges need to be gone
Family is Family
We are as one

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
