Family Traits

A couple nights ago, we were reading a random family devotional which, much to my dismay, extrapolated on Family Traits. Red hair, green eyes, slight build, on and on, ad nauseum.

(Apparently they were trying to get at "we are the family of God and should take on His characteristics," but I rate it an "F" for failed miserably.)

So, we finished the three paragraphs and I asked my kids, "What are some of our family traits?"

To which Frodo replied, "Basically nothing."

I laughed my head off.

PS I then did my motherly job of bringing it around to our family creed: Honor, Obey, Respect, Encourage.

Because values mean more than hair color, anyway.
