When I was but a wee lad up to my teen age years Halloween was was one of my favorite holidays. All day long sitting in school I would be candy dreaming, anxiously awaiting when my friends and I would go out trick or treating. While over the years Halloween became a holiday my family and I no longer celebrated because of our faith I still think back to those times. While as Christians we don’t partake of the holiday we can create a fall fun day where we get together and celebrate the fall season and God wonderful creation.
Back in the day if you wanted stay in touch with someone it meant either getting in your car and driving there or calling them on your rotary phone. What is a rotary phone well that is for another time. Today if you want to stay in touch with someone you have a variety of options which include but is not limited to Skype, Facetime and a lot of other options which means there is not excuse for not staying in touch with the ones you love.
While staying in touch in this world has changed staying in touch with God has not changed over the millennia. Prayer and reading God’s word and listening for God’s still quiet voice is the way to stay in touch with God. What, you’re not doing those things. Well you’ve missed out on a lot of time talking to the one who loves you the most.
Oh the things you see these days. Just when you think you’ve seen it all something comes along and surprises you. I guess that is what life is all about. The old adage, “There is nothing new under the sun,” is not true because each dawn brings a new day. A new day with opportunities to share God’s love with each new person you come in contact with in your travels. So look arounf and find the new things which come your way.
I don’t usually do this but i decided to make today’s drawing a collaborative effort. In my day to day I work with high school age children one of which as you can see is a Charlie Brown fan. I thought I would draw the child a cartoon character of my own. The student then took my drawing and turned it into a pseudo Charlie Brown painting. In life there are some things which make you smile. For me it the little things I do for others, not to get any recognition or accolades but because it is part of my heritage as a Christian. I think if we all did the little things for others the world would start to be a better place/
