A Family Is…

[107 words]

A deeply rooted tree
with branches
of different strengths
all receiving nourishment from our Father in heaven.

Where character is formed, values are learned,
and society is preserved.

Where all members contribute a share, cooperate and work,
and accept their responsibilities toward the good of the group.

Where holidays are celebrated with feasting
birthdays are acknowledged with gifts,
and thoughts of days gone by are kept alive
with fond remembrances.

Where each can find solace
and comfort in grief;
pleasure and laughter in joy; and kindness and encouragement in daily living.

A haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace, and most of all,
a harbor of love.
