With the passing of my father last week, I was reminded once again of the importance of family.

We were surrounded by my sister and her family along with various cousins, nieces and nephews, many of whom my kids had never met before.

I continue to be amazed at how tragedies cause us to circle the wagons to protect those we love. And while we were together we all said that we need to get together more often and not wait for another funeral, but we won’t, we’ll see each other at the next funeral.

We also experienced the love and support of our spiritual family. We could feel the prayer support of our brothers and sisters in Christ, through the cards that people sent and those who made the trip to Saint John to attend Dad’s memorial service.

Believers came from a variety of churches from around New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to celebrate the life of Dad and to mourn his passing.  Heaven’s gain is our loss.

But isn’t that what being part of a family is all about? Being there for one another.  Thank you for being there for us, those who are family by blood and those who are family by His blood.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible
