Who Could Make Normal out of This?

Do you sometimes look at your family and think, "Who Could Make Normal out of This?" Does it require faith to live a normal life in the world we live in? I believe it does!

It's impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (MSG)

Do you have a “normal family”? What does normal look like to you? Do you have to be happy to be normal? I’m about to come to the conclusion that there are no normal families, because what makes one person happy in the family doesn’t always make the other person happy. And when you have a large family it is a miracle if you can get anyone to agree on anything. Unless you are the Walton’s, and sometimes Mama wasn’t always happy with the kids, especially when they got older and sassier. 

I must concur with Patsy Clairmont, who said, “Normal is only a setting on your clothes dryer.” May your day be blessed, and don’t worry if your family isn’t normal; God loves them anyway! And you, too:)
A little addition:  Something that I posted on my granddaughter's FaceBook concerning "voice and using it" I think may apply to some others of us, myself included: Don't stop singing your song ever! You have a strong voice and need to be heard; the world has never experienced anyone like you and never will again. You are unique and you are loved and cherished even on those days that it doesn't feel that way!
A song and a prayer is what I offer today
Part of this was a repost but for those new, I hope it helps:)
