Busy, Busy + Harvest Blessings
|Siblings and me at the Pumpkin Patch|
Our family doesn't go trick-or-treating, or dress up in weird costumes and walk around the neighborhood on Halloween. Now believe me, we know lots of people who do, and we don't think it's wrong, we just don't do it ourselves. Instead, our church puts on a Harvest Party where kids play games for candy and have loads of fun with other kids from church without having to dress up and knock on doors.
|Here's a car I can drive without a permit or license. :P|
Also, in early October, our family went to a pumpkin patch owned by a Christian family that goes to our church. It was so much fun walking up and down isles of pumpkins looking for just the right ones to put in our wagons and buy. They had a gift shop there too, and I bought a pair of earrings (surprise! ;), and a couple bars of cinnamon soap for some friends of mine.
Now, I must admit that Halloween is probably my least favorite holiday because of all the things our country brings to your attention around that time of year. Nevertheless, I think we, as Christians, should take advantage of that holiday too. For instance, if your family does go trick-or-treating, you should pass out tracts at every house you stop at. Maybe they won't read it, but all we have to do is plant a seed, because God takes care of the rest.
So, don't let the Enemy use that holiday for himself. Let's use it to spread God's Word!
God bless you as you go on your way! :)
