Ps 91 (NKJV)

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

As I was thinking about what to post, the word kinship popped into my head.

Kinship, as defined by, is
1. the state or fact of being of kin; family relationship.
2. relationship by nature, qualities, etc.; affinity.
1825–35; kin + -ship

I like the second definition. An affinity. That means I feel something for you because we like some of the same things.

I like to read Christian romance novels. A lot. I feel kinship to others who like to read the same.
I like to write and create Christian romance novels. A lot. :) Again I feel a kinship to other writers (of romance or otherwise).
I have children. There is a kinship between mothers, no matter their ages.

With whom do you feel a kinship?



  1. I think of someone as a "kindred spirit" when we seem to connect at a certain level but I cannot put into words what that level is- I just feel it.

  2. I love finding kindred spirits. Of course, Jesus is. But those on earth that you find kinship with are often very few. However, I believe as a writer, I do feel a kinship with others who pour their lives out alone on a page.


I hope you have been blessed by my blog. Thank you for your comments.
