Oneness in Our Families
By Morayo Isi
We have chosen this month November as the month for families. We chose it because Thanksgiving, a family oriented holiday is usually celebrated on the last Thursday of November. It is a month when families gather together from far and wide to celebrate life and be joyful. They gather together to fellowship with each other.
They gather together to catch up with each other’s lives. They gather together to encourage themselves. They gather together to meet and welcome new additions to the family such as new spouses, new babies, new inlaws and such. They gather together to eat and some even exchange gifts. The children are not left out but also get to spend quality time to develop life long relationships and friendships. They gather together to share wonderful memories from the past and to remember those that past away since the last family. gathering.
They give thanks to God for each other’s lives. It is thanksgiving after all. Isn’t it?
