” For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples”.

*** LK 2:30-31***

With yet another Christmas in our rear view mirror and a New Year lurking in our future, let’s look a bit deeper into what is Christmas. Christmas is a whole lot more then giving gifts or even receiving gifts, Christmas is the birth of Jesus Christ and even further, it is the creation of a family between Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. When Jesus came and walked his path here with us, we all focused on him, while Mary and Joseph went to the back burner of life, but if you took the time to notice, both of them were never to far from their son. Even at the time of death for Jesus, his mother Mary was right there with her son, while her love spoke loudly among us all. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph became a family when Jesus was born, they then built that strong foundation and bond that family is, which today we have gotten away from, and all the ugliness and hatred around us today, proves even further, of just how much we have swayed away from what a true family is.

The last few decades we as a society have wandered away from the true meaning of family, we have wandered so far away that, families have become broken, and through all the divorces, there is a whole generation that have grown up with only one parent, making them incomplete. True of the family foundation being solid and strong, but over time and without tending to the decay of the foundation, it then will crumble and fall, which is what we are seeing, with all the ugliness and the hatred around us. Family is what helps us all grow into a society of many, each parent in their own way, teaches everything we need to know to be better and stronger with each step moving forward, The Mother will teach us love, compassion as well as many other factors, the Father will teach us strength, respect as well as many other factors, we need both to be complete, when one is missing, we then are incomplete, the foundation then stops being built, and is so weak, that it does not take much to corrupt who we are.

Our family here on Earth is, a Mother, a Father and Siblings, our spiritual family encompasses a whole lot more, as each of us are brothers and sisters within the society of God. This spiritual family is a lot bigger then our family here on Earth, the family foundation starts being built within our family here on Earth, then continues as we grow within the society, so when we are within a broken family and the foundation stops being built, now we have no basis to build from within the society of many. With all the problems and the troubles that the year 2020 has brought to us all, is a bi product from the last 10+ years, and the fact that we all have been suffering from the effects of all the broken families around us. Now the family you are in may be complete and you may be complete, but all the other families around us and especially the broken ones, whether we want to admit it or not, have effected each of us, in one way shape or form.

Nothing really ever lasts and there will be much change all around us, just like the rock in this picture, you think a rock is solid? but when the rock is submerged in the water for a long time, and then becomes free from the water and into the rays of the sun, it can break in two just like this one. Well the family foundation is much like this rock and needs constant work all the time, to keep it strong and to stand up to the test of time. Each member of the family has their own part in building the foundation, and when one of those parts are missing, now the building stops and the incompletion begins, leaving all to try to find something to fill the void, from the broken family foundation.

Yes it is true that we can succeed along this journey with only one parent, but to truly succeed along this journey, and to feel totally complete as we walk our path of this journey, it takes a complete family, for each of us to feel complete, as we grow into a society of many. Throughout the years all our lives have changed in a negative way, now it is on we the people, that can change it back in a positive way, and in a way that Jesus showed us here on his journey, right now we are all hurting with all this negative change, the time is now to change positively, so we all can get back to peace and happiness, and away from all this ugliness and hatred. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, and it starts with family helping us grow correctly within the society of many.

” Family Time whether spiritual or Earthly, has a foundation to nurture and grow”

” The birth of Jesus Christ brought forth the feeling of family and the building of the family foundation”

” Rise take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child’s life are dead”

Mt 2:20

 

We all have family here on Earth true, but what is part of an even bigger picture is, we are all part of a Spiritual family that also helps shape us into the person we truly are. Jesus Christ came to us from God our Father and Mary our mother, Jesus walked his path of this journey with us to show us that, when we walk it correctly and when we walked it truly feeling the love within our hearts, then nothing will get in the way of we ourselves sharing that love with each other, with the hate we see today not even standing a chance against the true love of Jesus Christ and the true love within all our hearts and souls.

Family time is the precious time we spend with our families, to bond, to build that strong foundation, so we all can move forward with confidence no matter what is thrown at us within this broken society. Just as this table is empty in this picture, so is this precious family time that helped build who we truly are, as a kid growing up, I remember every Sunday being the ” family time”, gathering around the table and eating dinner together, truly chatting with each other, not just to help each other along our paths, but forming a strong bond and a strong foundation, one that can never be broken and even if it was to be cracked, we worked together to mend that crack and moved forward better and stronger. Within this broken society of today, the family time is stripped from us all, we let the fast pace dictate not just our lives, but of who we are as now we have become like a Robot instead of being an actual person, who walks a path through this journey of life.

Now I get the fact that even within a family we go through some tough times for many different reasons, we become drawn apart from each other, we fight and argue with each other, we also may not see eye to eye with each other and have our disagreements, but at the end of the day we are still drawn toward each other, as the magnet within us keeps pulling us together, this is the power of the Holy Spirit, this is the love of Jesus Christ deep within all our hearts and souls, so no matter of all the hatred and ugliness outside of the family, it will never last within the family as it is the bond and the foundation of family, that truly keeps us all strong as we walk this journey, regardless whether or not we want to recognize or accept what family is, truly what family is, a bond and a foundation built with hard work and love of each other, so we then can grow within a society and show the same love with a much broader and wider group, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” At least one day a week our families would gather around the table to further strengthen our bond and the foundation of our true family”

 

” When we do not take the time for our family time and gather around the table, eventually over time the bond and the foundation becomes cracked with no fix in-sight”

 

” Just as we have our family here on Earth, we are also part of an even bigger family within the spiritual world, which helps us grow and share our true love with each other”

 

” At least one day a week dinner time would be a lot more than just eating food, it would be a bonding time to help strengthen our family foundation further”
