October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses,...which began the Protestant Reformation,...it is little celebrated, or at least here in the deep south...and seemly little known, aside from those who truly have a yen for church history...but for us it's an important date,...and we've always give the day its due,...because:
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Those (2) Bible verses,...are pretty much the entire 95 Theses in a nutshell,...
As for Halloween,...gee that's always sticky for us,...because 'unsurprisingly' we don't go in for the spooky-scary stuff,...it's just who we are.
However in our area, Fall Festivals are plentiful and we have taken Isaac to several,...he likes the slides and jump houses,...but he doesn't 'get' the significance of holidays,...so sigh, but just a little, because Isaac is being exposed to new experiences,...and that's always positive.
Besides,...Isaac ALWAYS has a blast!!!
Today Isaac's preschool is hosting a trick-or-treat party,...thus he has his trusty 'jack-o-lantern' or 'pum-pin' - all ready for school,...and he dressed in black for his costume,...which is super-simple, as I sent his little yellow 'batman' vest,...but if he gets sensory-overload and balks, I told his teachers to just consider him:
Johnny Cash - the man in black
May everyone have a fun and safe
Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
