This is one of my favorite pictures - this was taken early one spring day - flying kites. This is my son and daughter - they have always been close and on speaking terms.
To me the closeness of siblings needs to be nurtured and encouraged. Years ago both went through serious challenges due to choices made in their lives - today, years later, after living states apart - they are now 15 minutes from each other and are supportive of each other.
Those of us that are brothers and sisters in Christ need to learn from that. We need to learn to get along and be supportive of each other. My two children are as different as night and day, but they love each other. Lets look today and see if we have any 'brother & sister' relationships we need to mend or restore.
