It's Always Good to Praise . . . Sweet Lord

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.  For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.  Psalm 5:11-12

Enjoying The Halloween Season

Hope you're all enjoying the Halloween season . . our home church's annual Fall festival is coming up next weekend.  It's an old-fashioned simple kind of festival, but always fun to catch up with old friends and eat plenty of goodies while you're at it.

Celebrating Halloween . . .

I love to celebrate the Halloween season.  I have a vintage Halloween collection.  I've collected it for many years, since my kids were little.  It brings back so many wonderful memories with my family.  Halloween memories to me are making costumes for my kids and sometimes their friends too, not just when they were little, but even as they got older, and still now.  Going to our "home" church's October Festival and trick or treating.  Dave aka Mr. Grumpy loved Halloween.  He always wanted to "scare" the kids with the yard decorations, especially when they would come to the door for candy.  He would love to play the "spooky music in the background and wear a monster mask.  I'm sure going to miss that this year.   Decorating the house this year felt a little different  . . not so much fun, but I'm learning to make new memories now . . wow, life is a journey, that's for sure.
