Extended Family, November 24, 2017 Daily Reflection

Jake and Great Grandma

Most Americans spent yesterday with extended family. Some dreaded the time together. Some argued and fought. Others enjoyed catching up and exchanging old stories of times gone by.
I enjoyed the time I had with my family. I hope you did too. If you didn’t I hope that you can learn from the experience. Instead of replaying the arguments or irritation from the day let it go and pray for the family members. Know that although we don’t pick our family, they have helped to shape us and they have good and bad flaws just like us.
We need to learn to accept and love all people similar or not! Pray for understanding, patience and kindness.
