FAMILY

The most valuable thing in America is the family.

There are many groups that are considered family such as church family, organizations like the Masons and even the military especially in time of war.

There are some strange make-ups within the military; I read about a soldier who, speaking of his squad said; "Some of us hate each other but when engaged in battle we would willingly die for one another."

Another disparity in the family structure is the drive of the gay community who are trying to redefine what a family is.

The reinterpretation of the constitution by liberal justices has amounted to an attack on the family unit. The acceptance of the same sex agendas will ultimately force Christians to reject the government model and establish a new criterion for family status.

There are also some who, for whatever reason opt out of the family and go their way alone, this is always sad but it’s just the way it is.

The basic family consists of those who are born into the family unit, married into it, and broadening out to include adoption and fostering those in need.

Some friends are so close that they are included as one of the family.

When the family functions as a family there is security, safety and loving care. This is getting more difficult due to the many of the family members living far apart. I have many relatives who I have only seen a couple of times and is almost like they are strangers.

With some of my grandkids living several hundred miles from me I don’t get to see them but once or twice a year and we don’t get to really know each other very well.

I suspect that I seem like some old guy that is out of touch with today’s reality. There maybe some truth to that for I don’t buy into the lack of commitment lifestyle, which I view as failure going down.

Every family needs to be together often, for relationship without fellowship breeds a meaninglessness feeling for the family, and that is undesirable.

The most secure thing you will find on earth is a close knit family that loves one another.
