You have one family, not by choice but by some mysterious design. Why we were born into one family and not another is beyond our control and comprehension. But, it happened. We all must make peace with the fact that we were born into one family, not another, in one location and not another. We spend much of our lives trying to make sense of it all. Have you been able to get to the point where you can be thankful for the blessings of being born into your family? Can you focus on the ‘growth points’ instead of the weaknesses? We know that God ordered our steps and makes no mistakes (Psalm 36).
