Did YOU see something scary tonight?? Or did you see the beauty of the families walking from house to house together? I was blessed to have over sixty little visitors at our front door this evening. I was further blessed to see there smiles as the candy was placed into their treat bags. Most popular outfits this year seemed to be Power Rangers and Star Wars characters, a few witches and goblins, the expected Scream, and the most precious princesses and darlingest Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz!!
Though some people think that Christians should not celebrate Halloween, we choose to look at it from the standpoint of getting to give to our neighbors and families. A time of interaction where they actually come to my door and talk to me, even if briefly.
I even got to talk to a very well dressed Devil character tonight about how things in the U.S. may look like he’s winning right now, but the end of the story has already been settled in the Bible. “In the very end, you WILL lose.” A thoughtful laugh was the return from the teen along with a smile. The zombie with him nodded his head in agreement.
To sum it up, the way I see it, this Halloween was a good one spent at home with my husband and a variety of lively visitors.
