When Your Family Is Scattered

Is your family scattered? The holidays are a hard time for many. Whether the family is scattered geographically. Or scattered emotionally.

Some people are sad and lonely during the holidays.  Some days I am.   Some days I have to lean on God and trust that he knows what he is doing. 

And then I step back.  And I look around at everything he provides and I remember he loves me and that no matter what I can trust and depend on Him. 

And then I can think about something else . . .
Opening the door and welcoming you inside. . . I forget
. . . our family is scattered.  I think of  . . .
The beauty of Fall and I want to share it with you.  And I want to share it with my loved ones even if they are many miles away. 
And I think of ways to stay in touch and stay together even when many miles seperate. 
I think of ways to stay together even the miles aren't so far. 
And I ask God to give me hope and wisdom and give me creativity and ways to keep our family together.  And I lean on scripture. 
By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge
it's rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. 
Proverbs 24:34
I see our family as a house that God has built.  And I see everyone in it  my son, my DIL, my daughter, my grandkids (all3) and Cowboy as the rare treasures that he has placed in this house. 
And I search for ways to keep our house strong.  To build it up. 
Are you looking for ways to keep your family strong and secure? 
Please come by tomorrow.  I'll be sharing a few of my ideas.  Please leave me a comment and give me your ideas to grow a strong family! Or write a post and share your link. 
My Journey is Blessed . . . I pray yours is Blessed,
