Why We Care

One of the nicest things about visiting family on the holidays is getting to see all the new babies that have arrived.

Yesterday, our one-year-old grandson stole the show, walking around jibber-jabbering and hugging everyone.

One young mom, with her first baby in tow said something profound.

She talked about how she knew that life with a newborn would be difficult, with the loss of sleep and all.

But she also said life before the baby was good, but not nearly as good as it is with a baby…and that only the birth of that child brought clarity to the joy of parenting.

So true.

We are made in the likeness and image of God.

He told us to go forth and multiply (pro-create).

Like God, we are totally invested in our biological creations, and the powerful love we experience is based in our spiritual connection to the Divine nature of God, that He has so generously imparted to us as parents.

Love your family as you give thanks and you will never want for anything else.

Happy Thanksgiving.
