By being born into the family, of course. People who are born into the family don't have to marry into it. :giggle:

Or adopted... Very rarely somebody might be adopted in. When Bro. Jackson died, our family kind of adopted Sis. Jackson (that elderly lady I give a hug whenever I see her.) She is covered by our family insurance, though she is fairly self sufficient and has never availed herself of "Smith" family insurance benefits.

Good morning everyone :) Bob is flying out of Oklahoma to Seattle today, and the weather is not good. In fact, it is snowing here also. His original flight plan was for tomorrow, but I think the weather is supposed to only get worse; it was the airline that changed his plans. He is to bus from Seattle to Vancouver tomorrow. It may actually be a good thing that his trip will be over two days so he does not have to spend so much time all in one day cramped and cooped in a seat.

Please pray for a safe trip for him, and also that he is able to quickly find a place to stay once he arrives that is amenable to him and his needs, spiritually, financially and physically. Thank you!

Any prayers you could spare for us would also be appreciated :)

Loss is a pretty interesting thing. It’s quite powerful.

It brings about endless amounts of emotions.

It is also something that hides away for long periods and reappears at the oddest times.

It fascinates me that a rainstorm can be so loud (I find comforting), yet a snow storm brings such an incredible silence (just as peaceful).
