HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I Hope You Are Spending It with Those You Love!

We are! All five of our children will be here and all but one of our 27 living grandchildren. What a blessing! What joyful chaos. We will pray together, play together, and eat together. 

Our holiday tablecloth will grace the main table at the Thanksgiving feast reminding us of several dear ones who are gone now and reminding us of how the big grandchildren used to be little! So many memories on this tablecloth. I will read them all once again.

When Larry retired, we bought a big house in the country and moved from Alexandria (swampland) to the farmland of Shenandoah County. The kids named our new home Camp Kreitzer. Once someone stopped and asked if we really ran a camp. I laughed! Yes, a big family one. 

On fourth of July we had a crowd and a weekend of celebration with a fun run and lots of games celebrating this great country. 

Today we celebrate again.

Thanks be to God for the blessing of children and grandchildren. Our quiver is full and overflowing. No problem! When your quiver is full, it's a good time to go hunting. And the best thing to hunt is souls for Jesus beginning in your own family.

God bless all of you on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day. I hope your weather is as good as ours with sunshine and temps predicted in the 60s. But even if it's cold where you live, may you bask in the warmth of family love. There's no place like home for the holidays. Remember to keep them holy days!
