Ohana Means Family

I'm in the process of ending a relationship. We were together 15 years, and even though things were always somewhat rocky, my partner and stepdaughter and I always said we were ohana.

Nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

That doesn't work in the world of separation and divorce.

It's time to start looking for my new ohana. I expect that when I find it, it will be unexpected. Some people call this finding your tribe. I call it community.

God sets the lonely in families. (Psalm 68:6). It doesn't have to be family by blood. You can choose members of this family with which to surround yourself.

Remember those today who have been left behind or forgotten.
