No single post can list the details regarding the areas of family for which we express thanks. Family is represented by two components: spiritual and physical.
Spiritually, we are blessed by the Almighty God to share in the fellowship of a spiritual family, His church. The beauty of this relationship allows us to be one regardless of the color of our skin, age, gender, nationality, educational background, or social status. And the list could go on. In God’s family none of these matter. What matters is our relationship with God through Christ and to each other. First and foremost, for this we give thanks.
Physically, we are also blessed in this life to have those we love and who love us. Our physical family is not always biological in nature. Whatever the bond that brings us together, there is something special about family. Husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and more make up the nature of kinfolk, family, or relatives that make us uniquely our own. We may not always agree, but we can lean on each other. For our families, let us always give thanks.
