We live in a fast food drive-by world. If you blink you missed it. As I mentioned in a previous post, we also have adult kid in-laws and step adult kids. Like tons of families, we are a blended family. And it can become a tangled web, for sure. But never at any time did we dare to replace the other parent or grandparent. We are who we are, we are who we identify with, “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, loving favor rather than silver and gold“, [Prov 22:1]
Society has changed so drastically and with it the family dynamic….or rather, a cluster of people that have set aside the true gift of family for me me ME.
God is not pleased. He put us together for reasons only He can provide, but a plan He has! He has knit us together for a purpose.
I know my family is a mess but I can’t imagine changing the lineup would have had a better result:
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
Pray that these kids not lament where they came from. God knows where they ARE and will BE. He is in control!
