Words for my family!

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, April 20, 2012

"Honor thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." Deuteronomy 5: 16


Our family was blessed with persons who served as the maternal and paternal images for our family. The Hathaway family has a strong extended family that blended together because of the love shared by our forefathers and foremothers. 

As I reflect on Mr. Charles A. Hathaway and Mrs. Reather P. Hathaway, I marveled at the long-term relationship they shared. Through the vicissitudes of life, they remained steadfast and unmovable in their love for God. They exhibited a value system that had at its core a moral integrity, social dignity, a love for family, and spiritual tenacity.  

The baton is being passed to our generation. We are fortunate to have had outstanding Christian ancestors who showed us the way through their living.

“A family that prays together, stays together.”
