Thankful for Family

Family is a great blessing! Large or small our family is something to be thankful for. We are especially blessed if our family are Christians. Then not only do we have earthly ties but we have spiritual bonding as well.  

If your family or some of the members are not Christians there are still wonderful things we can be thankful for in our relationships to each of them. Think of a good quality in that person. Maybe they have a great sense of humor or are a good example in one area. I think of my alcoholic grandfather, he always tried to help me with problems. My mother who taught me how to be hospitable even if there was not much money or provisions. Be thankful and if they are still living and pray for them. My parents were saved shortly before their deaths after 30 years of prayer. Remember God is faithful and wants that loved one to be saved or restored back to fellowship if they are backslidden. 

Ephesians 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
