Is family important to you?
Family is very important to me. I have my husband, children, grand children, and even a great grand child. Yes I love them all and they are very special and precious to me.
Also we have family from the past that are in our memories, pictures on the walls, and in albums. All of these are cherished, especially as we grow older.
Surprised! What a surprise it was to get a phone call from a family member that was from my Dad’s brother’s family. We were able to meet and get caught up on family history. We exchanged pictures and information on our family line. Now we have extended family that we can keep in contact with. This was a great time for me.
Seeing this part of the family I really knew nothing about before the day we met them this week made me think even more about all those who have gone on before. How many of them knew Christ as their personal Savior? How many of them will I see in heaven one day? I trust all of them, but I have no way of knowing if they had accepted Christ as their Savior, except the ones I knew personal in my life time.
What a great day that will be when all of our family from the past and present will one day all be together in Christ.
As I think about the great family I have past and present, I am sadden that there are so many families today that do not have family histories. So many families are without real love.
Take time for your family, build memories now! So soon and before you realize it, time has gone by and so much precious time has been lost. Make it all count for Christ, as only what’s done for Him will last.
