The Bloodline pt 2

I had lunch with my son yesterday and just simply enjoyed the moment. It made me think of a recent conversation that I had with my sister and my wife in reference this “Brown Family Thing”.. Give me a minute cause I am going somewhere with this. I gave a nugget years ago called the bloodline.. I am going to revisit and revise… My sister recently moved here in Kansas. What a feeling! There is something about more Browns being in the midst. Nothing against other families.. I am relating to the Browns. See, we can disagree, fall out for a second but we never get it twisted… We are Browns…Nothing can tear that bond apart.. Only a few have married into the family and have easily adapted to the closeness that we have. My sister was talking about how her husbands struggled with our closeness. I hear of how girlfriends and boyfriends have struggled with our closeness. My wife (though I didn’t see it, said that she had to get used to it at first because it wasn’t typical and the bond is sooo strong.. She now functions as if she were a Brown all of her life..) My son and I are extremely close. I am close to all of my kids but will just use him as an example. It doesn’t matter what he does in life, at the end of the day, he is MY SON… I cannot not deny him.. Can’t disown him… He carries my DNA… When he does great things, he is MY SON.. If he were the next Charles Manson, the DNA would still say MY SON.. I can say with confidence that no one or thing can come in between our bond. Now things can disrupt the harmony of our relationship.. It has happened but at the end of the day.. He is my son and His mother’s baby. A Brown.. My sister and I laugh and say that all those who come into the Brown family, might as well get with the program because it is what it is. Our parents really did a great job of instilling that. Here is where I am going with this. When one accepts Christ, a blood transfusion takes place.. Nothing, nor no one can undo the bloodline.. It’s a done deal. Folks will struggle with your relationship but they cannot undo it. The DNA is there. Yet, we can by our actions, associations, and ways can disrupt the harmony of things…Get out of sync. Saying this to the one who has fallen or lost their way.. You can always call on Daddy.. He won’t deny what is HIS.. They don’t have the power to erase the DNA. The results are in.. Work on the harmony. The bloodline was established when you gave way to the surgery, through your submission to HIM… There will always be some who struggle with your relationship to HIM.. Just like some will always struggle with the closeness of the Browns.. It is what it is… The Bloodline.. STRONG… Never Failing… Here is one for you to feast on today.

Romans 8:38,39

I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord
