The Seaver Family became a familiar household name from 1985-1992. This tight knit family had weekly story lines with the children in the family having common family situations, and even some more serious situations, such as relationship issues, drinking, violence and gangs. Each week the show began with the catchy B.J. Thomas tune, “As Long as We Got Each Other”. The lyrics were:
Show me that smile again. (Show me that smile)
Don’t waste another minute on your cryin’.
We’re nowhere near the end (nowhere near)
The best is ready to begin.
As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin right in our hands.
Baby, rain or shine, all the time
We got each other, sharin’ the laughter and love
We all may not have the perfect homes, the perfect bodies, the perfect grades, the perfect relationships, etc… The great thing we do have is a loving Father and so many people in our FUEL family that love us and care about us. I just looked through the Facebook page for FUEL and there is so much joy and love in the faces of the friends gathered and united in Faith. Romans 12 verses 9-11 encourage us to love and honor and be faithful in prayer. Reach out to those friends and encourage them. As long as we have each other, we can get past some of our daily challenges and rely on His love and understanding.
