Family

Guest Post by Mrs. Brooklynn Manzer

November 13, 2019 my Mimi passed away from a blood clot in her lungs. It was the hardest thing that I had ever had to go through. 6 months later on May 20, 2020 my Pawpaw passed away from complications due to his dementia. That was even harder.

All of those feelings from losing my Mimi came rushing back to me. It was a very hard time for my family and for me. I realized that God and my family will always be there for me. So, that’s why I’m writing about my family, because I love it so much.

God blesses people with families for a reason. You’re lucky to have a family, but you’re even more lucky to get to spend time with them. So, when you have that family time spend it well and enjoy it while you can.

I’m so thankful to God for giving me the best family in the world. A lot of people say that they have the greatest family in the world, but it’s not true because the greatest family in the world is mine.

Proverbs 17:17 says, “a friend loves at all time, and a relative is born to help in adversity.”

Dear God, I pray that you would continue to bless more people with family time. Thank you for blessing my family and me with all of the crazy times that you give us together. I pray that you would show everyone that even when they’re going through a rough time you’ll always be there for them. I love you so much Lord. In your Holy name I pray. Amen.
