Our family had a Peanut Boil and Watermelon party on Sunday afternoon at my fatherinlove's home.
Nothing like a Sunday afternoon visiting, talking, laughing, playing a little corn hole and sliding down the water slide! Especially when it's with brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and etc.
Of course the highlight of the day was when my nearly 82 year old fatherinlove had to show them all how it's done on the water slide!
It was also my sisterinlove's birthday. Isn't this the cutest cake? I didn't have a slice but I heard that it was YUMMY! She is known to her grandchildren as "Granny Darlin". Isn't that just the cutest thing ever?
The definition of family is: basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not.
Whether it be immediate family or extended family there is one thing I know for sure....
A family is truly a gift that lasts Forever!
Friends will come and go.....(with exception of those few that God will place in your life that lasts a lifetime) but nothing takes the place of FAMILY!
My prayer for those of you reading this today that may not have a family unit...or a family that is close...or even, maybe...family that just struggles to be family....
That you will feel the love of God as never before and that you will lay all the cares, worries and struggles of FAMILY at His feet!
Life is too short...Time is Precious!
And my favorite saying of all times is;
If we do what is right....our God will take care of what is wrong!
I am not sure who needs this simple message today but I know that the God I serve does not make mistakes and His message was loud and clear for this post today.
May you feel the presence of our Lord so tenderly today.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
