This is the reading that struck a chord today and the lector who read it brought it to life for me.
We just spent a week with our grandsons, daughter and son-in-law. Watching a young family in action! I forget how much work goes into raising good kids. It is a full time job! Diligence cannot be underrated. Parenting is one of life's most important jobs, in my humble opinion. That being said, if your family has no children, it is still important to treat each other with kindness, gentleness, patience and forgiveness. There is still much to be thankful for and there is still love.
If you have made it to the end of this "sermon", God bless you and your family now and in the New Year! Thanks for reading.
