F is for Faith and Family. In our family we have a variety of beliefs or some that do not believe at all. One side is totally Catholic based in their religious beliefs. The other side is Protestant in their beliefs, yet even that has a range from Congregational, Methodists, Baptist Free-Will, Baptist- Southern, Baptist-Born again. The younger generations range from Atheist, Native American, Celtic Mother Earth and Wicca in their beliefs. Myself
I choose to believe in the existent of God everlasting support. I support each family member in their choice of belief system as best I can. If they need clothing, money for missionary work, healing energy, hugs, prayers it is provided within my ability to do so. Sometimes is is a donation for a fundraiser of a frame photograph, collection of food and clothes to be sent and starting a prayer line with my friends on Facebook.
It seems that my ancestors were almost as diversified as our more recent family members. I have to add Quakers, Seven Day Advents and Mormons to the mix. My ancestors had to move to continue practicing their faith. Some cross the ocean to Colonial America, others crossed the wilderness America from coast to coast, north and south to Canada and Mexico.
It doesn't matter who we are or what time, Faith and Family were connected to how we lived#
