30 Days to a Better Stepfamily –Day 30

So here we all are, with the exception of our step-granddaughter who was with her mother.  None are perfect.  Some are related by blood, some by marriage, but all by choice.  When stepfamilies are created we all have to give a great amount of Grace to one another, and take it slowly.

 

Just like in a garden, we can see flowers blooming in different seasons.  Some children will accept willingly the new family; and, some take years to  adjust; while others, may never fully accept the new family at all.

 

All we can do is be willing to be used as Christ sees fit.  Because our full reward and blessings will never be seen here, in the land of the living – though some certainly could.  Our reward is in the hands of the one who loves us all more than we could ever understand and more than we could ever love in return.

 

For you in stepfamilies, here is the end message,

 

Love,

 

Laugh,

 

Show Mercy and Grace,

 

And keep your eyes on the One who makes all things new in His time.

    Good thinking, sharing re: the difference we walk through in our families by our mix of kids. Being honest, and straight-forward and understanding life’s reality is a blessed and wonderful “teaching” element. Even at my age with kids and g-kids in their less-than-perfect life choices and experiences, it is a good reminder of how to be a godly thinker.

    Thanks.
