When Families Falter

“So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest (for she was the sister of Ahaziah), hid him (Joash) from Athaliah (his grandma)  so that she did not kill him.”  2 Chronicles 22:11

“And he was hidden with them in the house of God for six years, while Athaliah reigned over the land.”  2 Chronicles 22:12

Sis Caddo mentioned that from her Bible reading time, she found  families were dysfunctional even way back when.

Lord, we pray for healing within our families today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Pieced Together

Under constant pressure                                           
families crack
separating into
precious pieces
that feel broken
until He heals
giving a place
at His table.


“I have taken the Levites instead of the first born of the children of Israel.” Numbers 8:18

I don’t know the theological reason why God did it this way, but my momma’s heart rejoices that families were kept together.

Thank You, Lord, for keeping my family together. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Miracle Meld

So many damaged families
rent relationships, torn up lives

we have all the same ingredients
yet remain together

another Jesus miracle
in my life.
