I am so grateful for the family with whom God has gifted me. I’m especially thankful that many of my family members have made a commitment to follow the Lord. I’m sure each of us can make a list of people we love who are faithful followers of Christ. Have you praised God lately for saving your loved ones? Try it–it will give your heart a lift. There is no greater joy than knowing your family is secure for eternity. (Suggested carol: “O Come all Ye Faithful” by John Wade.)
