This is a celebration of family as it should be. It reminds me of the hymn, “Happy the Home When God is There.” Today, reflect on these lyrics, giving thanks for the times of peace and joy you have experienced with your family.
Happy the home when God is there, and love fills every breast;
When one their wish, and one their prayer, and one their heav’nly rest.
Happy the home where Jesus’ name is sweet to every ear;
Where children early speak his fame, and parents hold him dear.
Happy the home where prayer is heard, and praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the sacred word and all its wisdom prize.
Lord, let us in our homes agree this blessed peace to gain;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee, and love to all will reign.
