The Love of a Brother

Saturday is my older brother’s birthday! He will be 15. As he is only 18 months older than me, and we are homeschooled, you can imagine that we know each other pretty well. When we were really little, people would mistake us for twins, and we were together most of the time. When we got to be around the age of 10, though, we had some pretty bad fights. I guess it’s because we were developing our own personalities a lot by that time, and our personalities are polar opposites. So yeah, we had some knock-down-drag-out disagreements. Eventually we always worked it out, but we now aren’t nearly as close as we used to be. So as almost-14 and almost-15 year olds, we aren’t inseparable best buddies anymore, but sometimes still we will look at each other and know exactly what we are thinking; or tell a joke that only the other would understand. I am so glad God gave me an older brother. There’s no doubt that we love each other a lot now, and that will never change.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! -Psalm 133:1 KJV

    My brother and I got into fights and I am four years older than him. He can be a brat, especially when he was younger and didn’t get his way. Like, one time we fought over a spot on the cough, petty, but true haha!

    1. Yeah, sometimes the fights start over the silliest things but they get brutal πŸ˜‚

        We fought over a popsicle I think once, and someone got hit in the face with the freezer door. xD They do get brutal!

    That’s the same way with me and my older brother. We were really close when we were young. In all of my baby pics, I’m with him. But when I got a little sister, I guess he felt betrayed somehow and now we aren’t that close.
    Happy Birthday to your brother!

    I always wished I had an older brother. I have 2 younger ones though. My immediate and I fought a lot when we were younger. But now he is the closest to me amongst my siblings😊

  6. Awe, so cute! My siblings and I get along pretty well. I have five younger siblings. We have had our bickering but we’ve never had any long-term grudges.

  7. Wow,I’m so happy for the love you and your older brother have for each other. I’ve always wished I had the privilege to feel the love and care of a sibling,but I never experienced such because it has been me all the way. No brother or sister to share your pains,joys,secrets,sometimes you are all by yourself,cry in your closet but thanks to God for the gift of the Holy Spirit. He has been my brother,sister and companion so far and forever. Happy birthday to your brother and God bless his new age in Jesus name.
