Be Fruitful and Multiply

It started with a Guido and a redhead
and from there the family grew. 
What turned into six 
had grown from merely two.

The six turned into 7
then 8 and 9 and 10,
The love was over flowing
 from where it had once began.

And now 19 we are
The youngest to the old
Thankful for each other 
though not often told.

A family can be a blessing 
or a thorn deep in your side
but what's important is you have them,
so keep in check your pride

In remembering the gift of Christ 
to us on Christmas morn
And how came in humility,
 in the manger he was born.

To each other we must present ourselves
with mercy, grace and love
for it was demonstrated clearly 
from our God up above.

Giving service to each other 
in the way that we were served
not keeping records or accounts
or what we think deserved.

For someday we'll be the eldest 
of a family that grew from two
And our testimony will live out
in what we say and do.

Merry Christmas to my family
I love and cherish you all
So please know how much I care
even when I forget to call. :)
