Family Circle

New Image

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”
―     C. JoyBell

Today’s theme from the Daily Post is: Karma or Circle  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/02/12/daily-prompt-karma-chameleon/

I am not a big believer in karma but I do believe what the Bible says “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.” Prov. 18:20

I also think that the bold quote above by C.JoyBell is true. Families are simply complicated. At the end of the day when you sit down around the circle of the dinner table you may not see eye to eye but disagreement doesn’t trump love. Blood is thicker than water and love is thicker than both transcending all. It may not bring me good karma but I hope what I have spoken brings life to some heart out there.
