Abbie made out like a bandit with two overflowing baskets of candy. We did some trick or treating with friends and then returned home to pass out candy to our friends. It was a good night and a lot of fun for the kids. Now, what can we do with all this candy we have!!??

We enjoyed a chilly afternoon at Johnson's farm pumpkin patch with Papo, Gigi, Leah and cousins Wyatt and Cassidy. Abbie enjoyed feeding the goats and seeing many more smelly animals: horses, cows, pigs, piglets, bunnies, and chicks. There was a barn completely filled with hay for the kids to jump around in. We were pulled by a tractor to search for the perfect pumpkin. I already had the perfect pumpkin (Asher) so Gigi and I sat in the tractor while Papo, Sarah and Abbie looked for pumpkins-as you can see Abbie found two.

I went to the Lion King. I sat close to the front. The animals came downt the isle but I didn't see the elephant. The Monkey (Rafiki) was silly and rose the baby lion up. Zazu, the bird, was very funny and was trapped in bones. I like the first song (Circle of Life). The worthog the the little guy (meer cat) were silly and ate bugs. They found the baby lion (Simba) and sang a song, Akunna Matata. I was hidding in mommy's side because of the scary part with the Hyhiennas. They were trying to be in an army with their Hyenna friends. Simba came back to the rock and was fighting over the mean lion. Simba and Nala had a baby.

Government intervention may ease our fears, but I am reminded of an important truth; Our hope in difficult and uncertain times caused by economic hardships, prolonged illnesses or broken relationships, is in God’s promises and power to provide. Political rhetoric or the size of our bank account may provide temporary comfort, but a lasting peace from an eternal hope comes from Christ alone. But we have to believe and this is where I find myself. At the very moment my senses are being assaulted by dire circumstances but the Lord's words of Life are instructing me to trust and believe in spite of my feelings and convincing me of something different.
