Time With Children Goes By So Quickly!

This picture was taken just 4 years ago at Catholic Family Land in Ohio.
My son is now a young man and passing me up in height.
Our daughter is now a young lady.
How just 4 years can make such a difference.
4 years from now Sean will be away at college and Mackenzie will be finishing High School.
As for my wife, she is like a good bottle of wine, just gets better with age...... And More Beautiful.
What a blessing it is to have a family. The love and joy experienced as a family is unlike anything else here on earth. Maybe that is why it is said that the love experienced in a family, particularly in the marital relationship is the only thing here on earth close to describing the love that God has for us.
The love that a Father feels for his children has to be a representation of what our Heavenly Father feels for us.
I would assume that the Love that a mother has for her children is also a representation of the special love not only created by God, but the love that we will be forever surrounded by in our eternal life.
Let us never take for granted the special gift that a family is to society and to humanity.
Let us always treat each other in the manner that God treats us:
Forever loving, forgiving, supportive, honest, and faithful.
