Hey man in my family, not a one of us fall far from the family tree.
It matters not if our bloom has long since faded far from the vine or if we are just coming into bud.
We continually sprout, bud and eventually bloom into the fruit we were intended to bare.
For us we were through many years of grafting, pruning and nuturing meant to produce the love of faith, forgiving and family that was planted by those who have long since past, yet had laid solid ground for us to grow.
How silly, ridiculous and arrogant of us to do anything other than continue and progress, as meant to be.
From what I know of life, not much that grows without encumbrance holds within the seed of character.
Character must be cultivated in the rich soil of family, some adversity, rich love and most of all a deep rooted faith.
For my family, each and everyone I pray. we continue grow through all the twisting, turning and most of all loving that lies within and beyond our family tree.
