As I continue to stroll through Genesis, I had thoughts of our family, both 20+ years ago, as well as last September.
Abraham's son, Isaac, had an arranged marriage that turned out to be a love match. However his mother had already died, and Isaac had been close to her. So the comment is that Rebekah moved into his mother's tent, and he was comforted.
I remember seeing Claire and then Brenda become part of our close family, and how they coped. Then last September I saw how they both supported Nick & Tim.
The Bible speaks of the planning of this match, but reminds me how special family can be.
I am thankful to be part of a close family.
