"I went to Jerusalem to become acquainted (Gk. istoria) with Cephas" - Paul's words from Galatians 1:18.

A Poem Entitled "A Perfect Family" - by Paul Burleson


A PERFECT FAMILY

A perfect family...
That's what some wish for I'm sure.
But in my mind...
... I'll settle for one that's mature.

A perfect family...
That's how some truly measure success.
But truth be known...
Behind each mask is found a mess.

A perfect family...
No, just people who love and forgive.
And that to me...
Is how our family has chosen to live.

A perfect family...
That's what some pretend to be.
But as the song says...
Our's is close enough to perfect for me.

Well said, Pops! Happy Thanksgiving!

and all who live in love
live in God,
and God lives in them. "
