26: A Tribute To Family I don't know when it started, Or how it all began. But God created families, As only our Lord can. He was teaching what it means, To love, honor, and obey. He wanted a strong bond, That we don't see too much today. He wanted someone to hold us, And show respect for others. He wanted someone who'd be gentle, And so he created mothers. He wanted someone strong, support filled with love. And so he created fathers, Sent from heaven up above. Brothers and sisters came next, With that, an instant friend.
27: Someone to look up to, Someone on who to depend. When he put them all together, He was amazed at what he'd done. He had created a family, Mother, father, daughter, son. But look at the family, Created by only two. How many we've become, And all because of you. We have a lot to be thankful for, The memories through the years. The many times together, Full of laughter, full of tears. I don't know where we'd be today, If it weren't for the two of you. To show us strength, support, and love, Like only the two of you could do.

50: On the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker. I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, tame cantankerous machinery, ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds, plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed, rake and disc, plow and plant, tie the fleece, strain the milk, replenish the self-feeder and finish a hard week's work with a five-mile drive to church." So God made a farmer. | Earl, Warren | Marvin 1952 | 1951

124: “Marriage: If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.”
125: Our Family is a circle of Love and Strength. With every Birth and very Union, the circle grows.
126: Family is the soil in which we grow the next generation.
127: . Grandparents | A Special Gift From God
128: Brothers Sisters
129: There’s a special kind of closeness that only families know, That begins with childhood trust and deepens as you grow. There’s a special kind of happiness in sharing little things, The laughter, smiles, and quiet talks that daily living brings. There’s a special kind of comfort in knowing your family is there, To back you up, to cheer you up to understand and care. Of all the treasures life may bring, your family means the most, And whether near or far apart, That love will hold you close.
130: Over the years As we grow old, We remember our Father So brave and bold. In the garden, Leaning on the plow, He would listen to me; I see him now. He would give advice And understand; He was always there To lend a hand. God made Fathers Strong and firm, For he knew our lives Would have great concerns. So he gave us Fathers To teach us to pray, And guide our lives, And show us the way. | My Father
131: There are times only when a Mother's love Can understand our tears, Can soothe our disappointments And calm all our fears. There are times when only a Mother's Love Can share the joy we feel When something we've dreamed about Quite suddenly is real. There are times when only a Mother's Faith Can help us on life's way And inspire in us the confidence We need form day to day. For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith And a Mother's steadfast love Were fashioned by the Angels And sent from God above... | A Mother's Love
132: Our Family is a circle of Love and Strength. With every Birth and every Union, the circle grows. Every Joy shared adds more Love. Every obstacle faced together makes the circle stronger. Circle of Strength At the center of the circle is our Faith. A Faith that Believes in a Sovereign God whose Grace is available to All through His Son Jesus Christ...The Author and Finisher of our Faith.
