Jesus, Please Bless Our Family!



 



I remember growing up in a Christian family.



We were content, joyful and quite happy.



 



Things were "going along rather well."



We loved each other... more than words could tell.



 



I think of the special love



between mom and dad.



As my parents... I was proud and glad!



 



Over the years that rolled on by.



Something happened.  I don't know why.



 



Our deep love became



replaced with "excuses."



Our relationships filed with



 harsh words and bruises.



 



This family... I once held so close to my heart.



Began to "unravel and fall apart."



 



Our love for another became bitter and cold.



Even to the day we're "growing old."



 



Everywhere... it is evident and appearing.



The family as a unit is disappearing.



 



We must come together and



remove all bitterness.



And walk in God's love and his forgiveness!



 



We must appreciate one another--



in spite of our faults!



Standing together on Godly principles



brings good results!



 



It we insist on "going our separate ways."



We'll be sorry "one of these days!"



 



This family is what God brought together.



It needs to be rooted in love!



Now and forever!



 



HIS love needs to be the glue that binds us as one.



Blessing every mom, dad,



daughter and son!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
