I have learned from experience that Jesus’ redeeming power extends not only to individuals, but also to families. There are second chances for families. There are new beginnings. There are things that seem lost or too late or forgotten, which circle around in seasons of bounty, often least expected. Let us not lose faith in God’s mindfulness of and purpose for families. All families are part of His plan, even when they are untraditional, broken, unrealized, or estranged.
