With so many threats going around, there is no wonder some parents are being a bit overprotective with their kids. I for one am a ‘where you going, who you going with, why do you have to go, who all is going to be there, what adults can I contact, and just plain old NO because I said so,’ kind of parent.
Since the recent news outbreak, we will not be taking our 7 y/o trick or treating, trunk or treat, or anything else outside of our residence for Halloween. Does that keep us safe? Possibly. Will it be safer to stay inside than going outside? In my opinion, YES.
Frankly I don’t know if all this clown mess and rumors of purging is true or not. Me personally, I would rather be safe rather than sorry. Of course, the world is full of fools who think scaring the daylights out of folks is funny or even bigger fools who actually act on their impulses to do ignorant things. In order to deal with a problem, you have to make a mental checklist of things that need to be handled.
- STAY inside.
- KEEP family safe
In my opinion, by following rule number one for this Halloween season number two is already well on the way.
There will forever be the perfect Christian who states, “Well you shouldn’t be celebrating such a satanic holiday anyway.” I always looked at it as a time for kids to dress up as their favorite Marvel or Disney character and get candy. At least that is the way it was when I was young, CANDY was the main factor. When it comes to pranks and all the other foolery, I wasn’t down with that anyway but I am not knocking those that do. To each his or her own… Some folks take innocent acts and blow them clear out of the water. (IJS)
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (I Peter 5:8)
My prayer for every one who reads this text is that you be mindful of your surroundings. Dear God, I pray that you protect each and everyone of us as we go on our way. As we venture out into the world and when we set up shop at home, Lord I pray the blood of Jesus covers us and our loved ones from head to toe. In Jesus name, I pray you send your angels to guard our families, protect us from our adversaries, and guide our thoughts in your direction. Lord I ask these things in your darling son, Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen.
Until next time…
