Strength Comes From Family
Your Family, no matter how many times you have disappointed each other, is still the beginning source of your strength.
All those previous battles between you and your kin or brothers and sisters should never take precedent over the love that the family must maintain in order to keep the strength flowing throughout the family.
No matter which family member is labeled dysfunctional or doesn’t respond to the call of responsibility, you must never bury them in your mind.
“You are your Brother's/ Sister's Keeper...
We would do well if we learned the Ways of the Tree.
For as the Roots hold the tree together, so must the family members hold each other together in times of crisis.
The Family can learn so much by seeking to emulate the Ways of the Tree:
Protect the roots, the fruits, the branches and every part of Your Family Tree for there lies your past, present, future and history.
If Love is truly in your Heart, find a way to heal the wounds that may be keeping Your Family apart.
“You are your Brother's/ Sister's Keeper."
You can substitute them, deny their existence, pretend you are not related to some of them knowing very well that the fruits are always connected to the roots.
Family is a Source of Power… Someone has to take a stand, someone has to lead and stop the bleeding of the Family Tree.
Will You be the One to make that call? Will you be the one to stop finding fault in each other and take a stand for the preservation of the family?
When the Blood calls do you hear with your heart? Do you respond or do you yawn?
Love Each Other because you really do need one another...
