Many, many years ago a friend quoted a phrase to me, that “Friends are the family we choose”. I know it may sound a little trite, but for those who don’t really have an immediate family themselves (be it parents, siblings or children), it’s comforting to realize that just because we may not have similar genetic members of the human species in our life, that it doesn’t mean we don’t have family.
CHOOSING your family can be an awesome blessing. For some of us, our friends truly are our family, and it’s wonderful. I’m blessed to have a family here in Austin whom I consider my family. He’s my “brother” – his wife and girls are just part of my family. Read more “Christians, we’re a FAMILY. All of us. Like it or Not!”
