Family Matters!

“God sets the lonely in families….” Psalm 68:6

I know “God sets the lonely in families,” because that is what he did for me. Although, the family I was born into didn’t last very long. I was born into a family with a dad, mom, and a sister – thirteen months older than me. My brother came into the world two years and two weeks later. We were a family of five, but sadly, that only lasted eleven more months. A few weeks before my third birthday, my father died. He was only twenty eight years old. Ronald Benjamin Hutchinson was traveling at a high rate of speed late one Sunday night, a few days before Christmas, then hit the concrete base of a freeway sign, leaving no skid marks behind. My mother told the neighbors she killed him. She ended up in a psychiatric hospital; my sister, brother, and I ended up in emergency foster care. The family I was born into no longer existed. At a very early age I was introduced to loneliness.

It was about twenty three years later, when I discovered what God really meant. I was a lonely young man, then I met the love of my life, Phyllis. Within a few years we had three children – Matthew, Melissa, and Michael. Thirty plus years later, we have two children-in-law, Danyel and Payton; and three extraordinary grandchildren, Jude, Sadie, and Graham. Creating a health family has been my passion. I love my family!
