Family~School of Patience

Life sure is not a bed of roses. As mothers most of our lives is spent pressing on, believing, holding on in faith, praying, paying bills, making beds, fixing breakfast and lunch, helping kids with home work etc.

Marriage sure is not a life long date, nor bringing up kids all fun.
There are times of joy and times of tears.
There will be ups and downs.
There will be times of endless talking and times of long silence.
But when we hold on together through the pushes and pulls of life the end is rewarding.
It's a joy to see kids grow, its satisfying to see relationship with kids and spouse be strengthened through years.
Looking back we can thank God not just for good times but also for the storms and thorns because it's the tough times that has made us stronger and so it is worth it all.
And God makes everything work for our best and binds us with cords of love that cannot be broken!

Family sure is a school of patience. Success of a family depends on having the right attitude, tolerance, acceptance and unconditional love.

Let's thank God for our families and for the good and bad times, for the roses and thorns, for times of plenty and times of want. Our Lord is faithful to see us through and bring us victorious!
Let's pray a hedge of protection around our families. There are people we know whose hearts are breaking, who are stressed out and on the verge of giving up. 
It's time to pray and command God's blessings on our family and rebuke and destroy the enemy's work.
May God's hedge of protection be around us and our families.
Job 1:10“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land."
