A Thousand Hills
Brother Norman and Niece Cheryl visited the church of our childhood and the home of our family’s final resting place. We shared a few of our happier childhood memories. Founded in 1852, it is such a beautiful and serene place. Cheryl and I agree, “A place to sit and soothe one’s soul”. Many of our hurts and disappointments seem to melt into thanksgiving at being a part of this historical place.
Just like churches, families also have mixed histories. They disagree; wound each other and often even fracture. But they can find the way, through the Grace of God to re-establish anew.
It has been said our lessons from history are unlearned. It is my prayer that we begin to learn and make better families and thereby a better world to live in.
