Generational Blessings

Sometimes I wonder why God has blessed me so much. I wonder why I was born into a family with a nurturing and loving mom and a dad who taught me what beauty is, the value of working hard, and integrity. Two people who stood before God 27 years ago and stuck to their commitment, selflessly raised 3 girls and continue to take an active interest in our lives.

I have grandparents who raised their 7 children in the Catholic church to be upstanding citizens who care about their home and family, their community and the world we live in. My sisters and I have managed to escape the lures of this world and avoided life altering rebellion.

I am just in awe at how God has blessed my family for generations. I wonder if my great great Grandpa on either side realized the full extent and consequences of his actions. I am so completely thankful and want the legacy of God's special blessing and favor to continue on my family for generations to come.

They say in trusting God, sometimes you have to look at the past to see how he's proven faithful because it can be hard to see it in the present. My past is full of the faithfulness of God and his divine protection. Thank you Father.
