Trick Or Treat? What Happen To Halloween?

Happy Ending of October!

It’s been a long month.
The ending has come.
Thank You, Jesus!

Through the years, I use to say Happy Halloween! I don’t do that no more. I didn’t know about Halloween until I entered into church life. I don’t seek the dead. Nor do I want to contact the spirits of demonic nature.

Now days, Halloween has been more and more commercialized. The costume and decorations are become more and more in number each year. I even seen a tree like a small Christmas tree decorated with Halloween things.

The stores have their own sections with Halloween costumes. There are things I never thought of. And of coarse there are demonic in nature.

I don’t want to see things reflecting the death or died things. I have seen decorations of ghosts and tombstones in people’s yards. I don’t like to scare people. Why would people want to do that? Those haunted houses and scary sounds are not good. I don’t watch scary movies.

Halloween has gone beyond what I remember as a child. It’s not safe for children to go door to door. Times has changed. It’s much safer to have parties or activities with people that we know.

May the Lord protect us from harm.
May we not be draw into the demonic realm.
May the Lord lead us into the safety every day of our life.
Amen.

Thanks for reading.
Happy Last Day of October!

Grace to you,
Susan

In The Aftermath

It’s the day after the World Series 2014 showdown with the Giants and the Royals. I’m glad that it’s all over. It’s been a long journey to see who would win. The San Francisco Giants came out the winner. It was a tough game. Congratulations Giants!

I was rooting for the Kansas City Royals. Who Missourian wouldn’t? You, know, I believe that there were some Missourian who didn’t root for the Royals. That’s a sad thing.

I’m not much into baseball. I watched on the series because I’m a Missourian. I think it would be proper to do so. Now as I look back, it was a journey to see the conclusion. And what a finale it was.

Here’s some of my thought after World Series 2014 ending last night.

“The World Series 2014 is OVER.
We can stay what we want to say.
What HAPPENED? Why DID he do that?
and so forth there after.
What happened, did happen.
Why he did that? Yes, he did that.
Let it be as it was. And move on into the next thing.
Till the next World Series…
Enjoy the season of whatever sports are playing.
Don’t get stressed out over because your team loss.
Don’t be puffed up because your team won.
It was a tough series.
Let things rest.
And be at rest.”

In The Aftermath:
Still people are questioning things about the game.
And the game is over.
Let it be history.

May we learn to move on with life when things come our way.
May we not drag things on and on and on and on and on and on.
May the Lord comfort those who can’t get over things.
Amen!

Thanks for reading.
I’ll still root for the Royals.
I’m thankful that the Royals got to be in the World Series.

Blessings to all!
Susan

Who Will Win The World Series? The Royals vs. The Giants

It’s the final game of the World Series 2014. Yes, I’m still rooting for the Royals. Game 6 was great! I hope that the Royals will stay on top of things. They are on to something.

It’s been a long journey in making it to the World Series. I don’t know how many games a team has played to get to this point in the series. These last weeks have been interesting.

Who can imagine those ups and downs, those turn around in the games. When the team had them beat. And things turned around. The Royals and The Giants got one more try at it. May the best team win.

I hope that the Royals don’t run out of gas. They have been playing hard ball. Their attitude has to be to win. I hope that they do. I hope that they can do whatever it takes to get things done.

May we look on with gladness of things that we want to see come to an end.
May we learn to seek out those things we long to understand.
May we Lord protect us on the journey.

Thanks for reading,
Susan

World Series 2014: Down To The Wire

Well, the World Series is back in Kansas City, Missouri. The series is 3 to 2 Giants. Will the Giants take the crown tonight? Or will the Royals give it all they got to make it even?

It’s been a long series. The teams are going back and forth. I’m hanging in there on those late games. Well, at least I try. I’ll tune into the game after I watch, Finding Your Roots. I like that show.

I know the World Series comes in October. I try to watch on. But this year is special. The last time the Royals were in the series was back in 1985. That’s 29 years ago. Don’t know when the next time they will be there.

May we enjoy the season that we are in.
May we capture the moments that we have.
May we continue on the journey that is set before us.
AMEN!

Thanks for reading.

Notes from Tuesday, 27 October 2009

Awkward Moments In Life

I’ve been thinking about some of my awkward moments in life. There were some that left me hanging. Indeed there are some that left me feeling stupid.

I remember at a wedding. There were a sack of some thing. I though that it was some thing to eat. I didn’t know that it was rice to toss at the bride and groom after they were married.

Then there was time when I was somewhere with a group of people. We were sitting at the table. Some one came a started to hug every one in the group one by one. By the time that person got to me they stopped hugging.

There was a time that I was waiting to speak to some one. I assume the that person saw me standing there. The person walked out as thought I was not standing there. I tried to stay to speak but the person seem to don’t what to speak to me.

Yeah, those were awkward moments. It seems to bring out the life in people. I have learned my lesson. Be patient in times that brings us out of wax.

Father God,
Thank You for being with us in our awkward moments in life. Guide us to use wisdom when those moments come again. May we learn from what we go through in Jesus’ name amen.

While On The Journey
Awkward Moments In Life

We all go through them.
May we handle them with grace.
Have A Great Last Tuesday of Oct ’09!

Goodness and Mercy to you,
Susan
