Ohana.

 
 
This weekend, my brother drove down to stay with us for the weekend. We had such a blast just being lazy and spending time with one another. This morning, he drove back just in time to make it to class. I am reminded of the importance of family whenever I am able to spend that rare but sweet time with my blood relatives. But as I think about family and what that word really means to me, it becomes clear that I am surrounded by family everywhere.
 
When my husband and I moved away right after our wedding, I thought that I was leaving my family behind. But God has taught me the real meaning of family..
 
"Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind..."
 
We all know that famous line from Lilo and Stitch, a show my siblings and I used to watch when we were younger and still love. It's so true, y'all!
 
Joe and I are so blessed to call so many people family!
 
 
From our own little family...

 
 
 

 
 
to our local church family...
 
 
 
 
 
 
to friends who are family...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
to the family we were born into...
 
 
 
 
 
to the family, the body of Christ all around the world...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of the family of God, a family where nobody gets left behind!
