The Blood of the Covenant

An old adage —

or is it a proverb? Perhaps they’re the same thing…

a saying, if you will,

used antithetically to its origin,

suggests ties made by choice are stronger than ties made by parentage.

When did we shorten it to mean something else? Why?

It seems someone or several someones were attempting to keep their children under control,

like some bogeyman of uncertainty —

“who will love you if your family doesn’t?”

The answer is: many will.

More than you can count on both hands.

You should count yourself among them.

Once you accept this, you can be free.
