Happy Harvest!

FB Readers...go to www.ourfamadventure.blogspot.com for full blog post.

Those of you that know me well, know that we hate the origins of Halloween. Therefore stopped celebrating by dressing up the kids years ago. Recently I have been rethinking the "dressing up" part. All over the world, satan is celebrated in different ways. Different cultures have various ways and days that celebrate something contrary to God's Word. We've brought much of this into our own culture here in the US...Christmas is a great example believe it or not. Look up the origins and you'd be surprised.

But just like we choose to focus on the fun of Christmas and the birth of Jesus coming into the world (although it's really not the day Jesus was born) and His one day returning, I'm choosing to focus on the "fun" and the time of celebrating the "harvest". So we had a little fun this fall with dressing up...without the evil of it all. And as they grow we will talk more about what the true "Harvest" is all about and how to "be in this world but not of this world". There is a deep spiritual side of it all that's just too intense to get into at this age. Anyway, here are some pictures of our fun! Enjoy!
