our kingdom



If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

When I read this the first thought in mind for me was relationships.  Any relationship that we have, each in itself is a kingdom.  
The "kingdoms" in my life are very important to me.  Most important of all is my relationship with Jesus, then my family and friends.  Those kingdoms cannot keep strong and remain steadfast IF I don`t foster and protect it.  Were it be my marriage, we cannot let others come in between us, no secret, no lies, no self greed, and anything else that can cause a crack in the wall called marriage.  If it`s our family we want to protect and keep, then we must love them unconditionally and give them our precious time, time for us get to know them and let them get to know us.  For us it also means we don`t put our work or career ambitions or any other things in higher importance than our children. It`s a sacrifice we choose to make now.  My family is my kingdom, C and I are the protector of it ! 

Strong relationship are build on firm foundations, made up by grains of time we spent together !   joyful times as well as troubled turbulent times.  This is true for our faith life, our marriage, family and friendships.  
I thought about my work place too.  We all play a role in keeping it a healthy place to come to everyday.  Don't follow the mass and steer away from office gossip !  always choose to be encouraging and supportive of others and don`t take things personally.
