It doesn’t happen very often.
Usually at Christmas or on vacation after the Singing Echoes annual Blue Springs Valley sing.
But today the whole gang with the exception of our precious Gabe were all gathered together for a night of activity, eats and camping out in our back yard.
It was a great day and the family had a good meal together then played some games as our Quen now a Cub Scout did some work toward earning some badges .
They taught Him how to set up a tent, spend the night in it, ate some burgers , & how to fire a BB gun…(relax folks , I played with one all my life as a kid and never went to jail for anything.Heehee)
We talked for the first time in it seemed like months. School work how the groups were doing and sharing Christmas wishes ( it’s just around the corner folks , 71 days!!!).
And some relaxing r&r after a very busy hard workin week for us older Eppersons.
Family …. Y’all know how I feel about that you’ve read my analysis to its validity many times.
I know of some families who can’t get together long enough to have a hotdog together. heehee.
My family is precious to me.
They’re not perfect , because I raised em. But they are close.
Close friend . Do you know how that feels?
Don’t get me wrong, we have disagreements. ( But they usually find out I’m right! Lol!).
And they stand side by side,
Respectful of each other.
If they were perfect, that would be Glenda s fault. Cause no one could blame that on me!!
And we know who is head of the house….. GOD IS!
I love them everyone. Was glad to break bread together, pray together and enjoy the bounty blessed by GOD together.
Just want to take this time to say – Thank You Lord, I’m a blessed man!
“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
Psalms 127:1, 3-5 KJV
