The Protection of Family

It was delightful to come upon a swan family while boating this weekend. We have never seen the cygnets on this end of the lake chain, only the adults. We found these in a quiet channel that ran behind a neighborhood. The swans were pretty calm until we turned around to exit... there was no outlet. The cob (male) looked as if he might attack if we made the slightest move he didn't like. The cygnets stuck close to their mother, the pen.

It is so pleasant to see a family living together with father protecting the mother and his young as God intended for us humans.

A lot of divorces happen because the couple has trouble managing money. And naturally it gets even more costly when trying to maintain separate homes. As things get tougher financially, it will be harder for families to live apart without each other's support. If you are married, please try harder to keep it together, for everyone's sake. If you are not yet married, don't do it until you are convinced you love the person enough to make the sacrifices necessary to hold it together. Believe me, you will be happier in the long run than you would be running off to find greener pastures. Green pastures don't grow by themselves. They need nurturing.
Show true love, and more likely than not, it will be returned to you.
