Clans and Families

With all the talk of "clans and families" in our reading today, I thought it might be nice to introduce you to mine:

This picture was taken two months ago at our Christmas dinner gathering. Seated around the table, starting on the left, my husband (with the mustache), my son (eating and not looking at the camera!), my nephew, my twin sister's husband, my twin sister, my aunt, my mom, my dad, my nephew, my nephew's wife, my nephew's daughter (you can't see her), my nephew's son, my other sister and her husband.

I'm so thankful for the family the Lord has given me. I have a godly heritage.

Today, I'm off to spend a day with my twin sister. Rather fitting with all this talk of 'family'. Two quick questions to ponder before I go.

Today we read of families numbering themselves to see how many would be prepared to go to war. Even though I trust many of you reading this are enjoying a time of peace, what preparations are you making to face an unplanned battle from the enemy of your soul?

Numbers 1:52 spoke of each Israelite tribe camping in a designated area with it's own family banner. What would your family banner depict? What symbol, what word would you like to see representing your 'clan'?

Something to think about as you go about your day.

Sweet blessings!

Enjoy your day...well, of course it's evening now.

I miss my friend! Wish you were closer. The computer just isn't the same.
