At the end of Oct., this holiday does 'not' END....
Happy Autumn to you all or Happy Fall, whichever you prefer. We have a gal named Marcia Montenegro at our church this wk., for Missions conference. She was once a professional Astrologer. Since she has 'been there, done that', as we sometimes say, she has much 'knowledge' about the 'spiritual aspect' of Halloween. Her web pg. is http://www.christiananswersforthenewage.org/. = CANA
Some of my favorite things about Fall are the blazing color from 'our Maple trees', also enjoy collecting some acorns....with my youngest grandson. I enjoy greatly the cooler weather, different type of menus for dinner 4 cooler weather, kind that make us gain weight ;o(
and a 'break' from outdoor yard work. ;o) Our youngest grandson is truly a Treasure, that is with us, a few times a wk..Everything else are extra 'treasures' ;o)
When I was a 'child' one of the things I 'imagined' in my thoughts were the cute little squirrels moving into the bottom of the large Oak tree in our driveway. There was a big opening, like a door size, for squirrels, I imagained they had pieces of furniture in various rms. of the tree trunk, just made 4 a squirrel family. But since I am no longer a child, i 'try' to put childish things behind me, but i still have sweet memories of 'my squirrel families living in the big OAK tree, about 4 miles from where I live now. ;o) I love the 'beauty' of TREES ;O), and all GOD'S 'creation'.......I Corinth. 13: 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became an adult, I put away childish things. But there is still a 'part' of me that 'loves memories' as a child. In Mark 10: v. 13 to 16: speaks of JESUS blessing the little children. Verse 14 says, "let the little children come unto ME (JESUS), & do notforbid them, for of such is the Kingdom of GOD." Verse 15: "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does 'not' receive the Kingdom of GOD as a little child, will by NO MEANS enter into Heaven."
