So, today is Halloween. This time of year was the last time I visited with my sister before she was placed in a coma due to multiple organ failure.
It is hard for me to be excited about Halloween for many reasons, the one above in particular.
Every year since, I have used Halloween as an outreach project...my sister would approve.
See she spent her "good" days during her hospital stay reaching out to those in other rooms who were alone and introducing them to Jesus.
I place Bible verses on the candy I hand out...sometimes I have attached tracs, and one year I had my kids hand thank you notes to every house they visited with a Bible verse inside! People are coming to the door anyway, why not send them home with a little hope!!
It is not much, and most probably get thrown away...but someone is reading them first...a sliver of light is breaking in the dark places. And the smallest of light can shatter the most sturdiest of walls!!
Have a safe Halloween and spread some LIGHT into the darkness!
