God and Families


As I sit and ponder on my life, I know I am blessed by and through my family.  God has placed each one in my life to love me, and me them.  Psalm 128 helps me to focus on my family.

Psalm 128 (NKJV) 

  1 Blessed is every one who fears the LORD,
         Who walks in His ways.
 2 When you eat the labor of your hands,
         You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
 3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
         In the very heart of your house,
         Your children like olive plants
         All around your table.
 4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
         Who fears the LORD.
 5 The LORD bless you out of Zion,
         And may you see the good of Jerusalem
         All the days of your life.
 6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.
         Peace be upon Israel! 

Here is what I learn from Psalm 128:

- I am blessed when I fear (revere, obey, follow) God.
- Manual labor is good and fulfilling for me and my children.
- The atmosphere (attitude) of the home reflects my attitude.  (If momma ain't happy, nobody's happy.)
- My children need love, guidance, and training.... just like olive plants.
- Children, and teens too, are a blessing from God.
- Grandchildren are a blessing and a heritage from God.

I love how God puts His Word before me to help me focus on what is important in life!
