Family Fights

Posted by Lesa Johnson

I followed a bickering couple out of Costco– I had stopped to buy some roses, I feel called to the cemetery today to pay my respects to my beloved. The couple was so angry about a spider– a Halloween decoration the wife wanted, the husband did not. The fight wasn’t private, it wasn’t pretty, and it ended in slamming doors on a Prius.

I gently placed my flowers on the passenger side seat and on a whim, thought about strapping them in. I did not.. I chuckled and then remembered the passage Our church has studied these last two weeks. You know, the devil doesn’t want us to have good relationships . He wants us to “live below the line”. In John 10:10 the Word says ” the thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

I’m not saying Dean and I never fought. We disagreed, for sure, but we loved and love was the superior emotion. I had, and have, a mostly rich and satisfying life. If you’re lucky enough to have a loved passenger in your life car, remember they deserve ( and you deserve !) the tender attention that my passenger received today, a gentle hand. The only guaranteed day was yesterday. Fights come and go. Making up is the best …. And forgiveness.

I’m headed to the cemetery, then home to ” do the next thing” and get through these tough two next days. I’m still a Jeremiah 29:11 girl because I choose to live above the line. I’m not alone, I have a wonderful family and more friends than I can count. I am loved and I choose life, love and forgiveness. #blessedbe
