If you've seen the movie, this picture has to make you smile. If you haven't, it's from "Little Miss Sunshine" and it is a totally delightful bittersweet comedy about a dysfunctional family on a road trip in a VW bus without a clutch. The last ten minutes of the movie (not to be revealed, of course) are worth the price of the ticket, but there are multiple sermons that could be written from this movie on the value of family and love in our lives. This is a family that loves each other in spite of themselves....like most of our families do.
It was the perfect start for our annual family vacation to the beach in Rhode Island. We're going to ride the waves, take long bike rides, go to the water park, play miniature golf, and eat steamers and freshly picked corn. It's been our family's annual vacation for more than twenty years. I'll be "back here" on Thursday.
Take a moment this week to be thankful for your family.
