The summer of 2015 has been a very enjoyable one for Dave and I. We are thankful for that!
Not all seasons are like that, though, in life. There are sorrow-filled seasons, stressful seasons, busy seasons, and non-eventful seasons that come with the times of joy.
What I find physically and lovingly constant in all of that is family. We have our children, siblings and cousins. Then there is our extended “family” from work, the community, as well as the organizations and ministries in which we participate. When I look back on all of our “seasons” foremost I see these people, filling those times with their presence.
At the foundation, though, binding everything together, is the love of God. Not physical, but even more lovingly present with us. Our guide and our rock.
Today’s readings talk of family. We hear that God saw it was not good for human beings “to be alone”. And Jesus became human, our “brother”, through the family of Joseph and Mary. Finally, in teaching on the sanctity of marriage, Jesus said, “Let the children come to me” – recognizing them as the example of trust and acceptance we need to have present in our faith.
