There is a wedding happening here.
Right here, as in my backyard, this Saturday.
Just as this verse says, my dear friend, Julie, is being set in a new family.
She has a family now, a very good family. Parents and a sister who love her dearly, but who are also very far away. She also has children she loves with all of her heart.
She’s also been a part of my family. Walking through the highs and lows of life, we’ve enjoyed many years of being her family away from her family.
But this Saturday, something new is beginning. A new family is coming together; a new place for God to do His work and blend his love.
God does set the lonely in families; in different ways and in different seasons. As His children, we can partner with Him in this work. We can be aware; look around, for those who need a family, a place to be cared for.
Who can you open your doors and heart to become family to today?
