FAMILIES MATTER...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

THOUGHTS OF THANKSGIVING which should be dominating our minds these days have been overshadowed by PRAYERS FOR FAMILIES OF PARIS MASSACRE VICTIMS, how to handle SYRIAN IMMIGRANTS, whether to and where to DROP BOMBS ON ISIS TERRORISTS and other ‘TOPSY TURVY’ SERIOUS LIFE ISSUES...

 

It dawned on me that many of these problems are related to the BREAKDOWN OF THE FAMILY...i.e., How could anyone engage in terrorist behaviour if he had any respect for THE FAMILY UNIT...bringing disgrace to his own family and causing grief for the victim’s families...!!!

 

What kind of FAMILY UPBRINGING would prompt people to displace families that have lived in a country for centuries if not millennia...???

 

What kind of god would approve of indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians using barbaric techniques repulsive in any age of history...???

 

MY GOD is A GOD OF LOVE, MERCY, and JUSTICE...Who reminds us we are ALL SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF OUR CREATOR...AND...

 

Because of HIS LOVE FOR US which prompts us to LOVE HIM BY LOVING and RESPECTING ALL THAT HE HAS CREATED...WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS...AND...

 

WE DON’T KILL BROTHERS AND SISTERS or EVEN CAUSE HARM TO THEM...That behaviour is the antithesis of LOVE...OR THE EPITOME OF HATE...!!!

 

PLAIN AND SIMPLE .......ALL FAMILIES MATTER...TO GOD AND TO US...!!!

 

HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING AND DON’T STOP PRAYING, FIRST FOR GRIEVING FAMILIES, AND SECONDLY FOR WISDOM TO RESPOND AS OUR LOVING GOD WOULD HAVE US...!!!

 

I have inserted below the official prayer from the World Meeting Of Families held in September of this year...A fitting Prayer For Our Times...!!!

That is really beautiful Fran Gaspari.  You did a great job with this and I am glad someone said it.  We all need to continue to pray for wisdom and God's guidance through this, & try to show love and compassion.  I know I am not even touching everything that you said in this, but I just wanted to say this is so well written, as a fellow Christ follower.  Thanks so much for sharing this!

Brenda,

I was somewhat troubled when writing this post...Usually the words just 'roll onto the page', but this one was tough...Thanks for your kind words and support, and for being a true Sister In Christ...!!!

Thanks again,   Fran

Mike,

I can't begin to understand father fighting against son, brother against brother, etc., as in the Civil War, but I did visit Gettysburg and you can actually sense the magnitude of dying and destruction that occurred there on that battlefield...!!! Do we learn much from history ?

Thanks,   Fran
