They came from down the street. It was a precursor to the storms that radar was reported headed our way. No House was safe. No person would be left untouched. Scavengers. Seekers of treasures. Like an apocalyptical mob with one thing on their mind … candy. These preteens were out early. And they were not alone … parents followed in their trucks and SUVs. Two dads were also in costume to encourage their little monsters, M&Ms, superheroes, ghostbusters, animals, sports heroes, farmers, and more.
I handed out the sweets (KitKats for the record) and even had a picture taken.
It was great way to close out October. And a great way to usher in November. I will take the challenge and list an item of thankfulness each day and what a great way to start by being thankful for children. These were just some of the Church family minions, and I love hanging out with the kids. I probably am mentally closer to a 12 year old than those of my own age. Childlike, not childish, I like to say.
So, may we all be thankful, may we all keep our hearts focused on God’s blessings, and may praises for Him ever be on our lips.
Please note … it goes without saying that first and foremost we should all be thankful for God’s love, grace, and mercy … His sacrifice on the cross … and the greatness of His faithfulness.
