Family in Action

What is family?

The people who stand with you during a crisis.

They also rejoice when good things happen. And very often they help make good things happen.

I was reminded of a bible verse, Job 2:13,where Jobs friends join him after calamity takes away his family and possessions. They sat with him for seven days and said nothing. That is hard to do. But they were there.

Presence--is more important than words. Being there is the best form of comfort.

Sometimes the best thing to say, is nothing at all.
