A full day

Today's entry will be short as our day was so full!

The kids all came over today and we celebrated Father's Day with Mickey. When Mickey and I married the girls were 18, 12 and 7. Over the past eight years they have all developed a bond with him, each in their own way. We have always felt very blessed that our "blended family" was just the right mix. That doesn't mean that we don't have our ups and downs...all families do, blended or not.

Church families are no different... we are a blended family, all coming from somewhere different in our lives, to live with one Father. We have our ups and downs, but the great news is that we have been CHOSEN to be a member of this family. No matter what our differences, we will always be brothers and sister, and God will be the head of our house.

Tomorrow the kids will all go their seperate ways, and Mickey and I will take Michael to visit Grandpa and Grandma and then head over to Pa and Grammie's. Yet, no matter where are chldren go, they know that we are family, and that at the end of the day, they are always welcome home.

Hope everyone has a great Father's Day...

Me and Steph use to say we were each others "Chosen Family"- and thats the best because we get a pick it ourselves!

I'm honored to be in the "Chosen Family" of Christ along with you!
