Daily Message – February 2nd, 2015
Today my message is simple. When I look back at the past month, and think about everything we have done, I am so grateful for family. Being part of a large family is not easy. Sometimes I think we focus too much on things we can’t do instead of taking full advantage of the things we can. I spent an hour after lunch yesterday playing music with #2 and #3. Using the hymn “O My Father”, we worked on an arrangement for piano and violin. It was fun to play the music and spend time together. Afterwards we played UNO with more of the kids and just enjoyed an afternoon together.
It reminded me of earlier in the day when #6 shared her testimony in church. She said that she knew families can be together forever. I am thankful to know that too. I hope that each day we will strengthen the relationships that matter most by forgiving, loving, and serving each other. This is the only way to create relationships that will never end.
