family day

Many years ago, a tradition in the Morgan family was started. Once a year, the whole family gets together and celebrates what we call “family day”. We enjoy each other’s company: catching up, talking, laughing, being outside, a delicious brunch, a mid afternoon dinner, and a lively game of Bingo.family day Cousins having their morning devotions.

And then Grammie starts calling out the numbers. Did I mention laughter? Well, that’s a big part of every family get together we have! [smile].

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalms 118:24
