Family Values


I love my family...

There's been a couple of big things that have happened in the past 6 months or so that have caused and challenged me to really think about how I view my family and if I'm taking a right or wrong attitude to them or not...

I know my family is not perfect... but then no one is perfect. We all have our troubles and disagreements, but when I stop and think about it, there are so many blessings and good facets that I love about my family, that I am just so grateful for. I am so blessed to have been born into a Christian family... I am eternally grateful to have been brought up learning about God and seeing the love of Jesus in my life. Mum and Dad made so many sacrifices for the family - worked long hours during the day and at night too so that my brother and I were brought up well, moved countries twice for better education and life opportunities, and doing all they could so that we would be able to do the best we can in life. Mum and Dad also gave us the good examples of how to live, and how to live as Christians. I can remember all the 'wise sayings' that Dad reminded me of, and all the loving and encouraging words from Mum. I can see in hindsight, all the ways my parents showed their love to me... from Dad running downstairs to open the garage door when I get home, to when Mum hugs me when she can see that I'm down and rotten... They were always there to care for me, encourage me, and to remind me that they love me and I'm not a nobody in this world...

I don't really know if that was just a dump from my mind and made sense or anything... and I doubt Mum or Dad will read this, but...

Thank you Mum and Dad.

Thank you Lord for blessing me with this family.
