I’m grateful for family

With Thanksgiving this week, I’ve been reminded again how grateful I am for family. The support, encouragement, and enjoyment that can come from family is something I am extremely grateful for. Many families have problems (what family doesn’t?). Some people want to be married or have a family and currently don’t have that. There are loved ones close to me who have experienced divorce, an unexpected death, health issues or other extremely difficult family challenges. I’ve experienced some of those things as well. In spite of this, it’s clear to me that the family exists by divine design. It’s an important teaching in my church that families can be eternal, and continue after death. I know this is true and I’m grateful for that knowledge. I also believe strongly that whatever our current family situation may be, if we follow God’s plan for us we will eventually be in the best family situation possible for us.
