Quotes I Love About Family

The Lord has really been great in blessing me with great gifts (grandkids and kids). This past Thursday after a year long prayer was answered, I SHOUT to the world that I am so grateful for the Lord’s mercy and goodness to me and mine and His will.  He always answers my prayers.  I am still having a praise fest. Wanna come?  So my beloved ones, I will share with you quotes, proverbs, and scriptures about FAMILY today and leave you with this thought….Whatever the Lord gives to you, cherish it with nothing but LOVE, and always be in prayer, thanking and praising him, not just asking.
