HAPPY FALL FESTIVAL DAY!

Halloween

I know today is a day full of evil and scary things, but in the midst of the evil, I want to encourage you with God's Word:
"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17


Isn't that awesome?! How humbling to know that He delights in me...the Lord of the universe! Not only does He delight in me, He is rejoicing over me with singing!!! WOW! He delights in you too. Is that cool or what?!
So whenever you see those scary things everywhere (and boy have I seen some awful things this morning!), just reflect on God's Word and know that He is with you and your kids (if you have kids).
Like Rachael said, we want to teach our kids to stand on God's word and to resist the devil. Today is an especially important time to cover them with the Word of God and much prayer.
Tonight we'll go to our fall festivals and rejoice in all the Lord is doing! Tristan is so excited!!!
The big Methodist church in town had a "Hallelujah Festival" on Sunday. Isn't that neat?! I've heard fall festival and trunk or treat but not the Hallelujah Festival. That's really cool! I love it!!!
I hope today is an especially great day for you!!!
