I am just so blessed knowing that I have the freedom to read the Bible, the freedom to talk, write, and share Scripture. To choose for myself who I will obey. Even in the small stuff, like mayonnaise or miracle whip… , salt- free, fat-free, favored… God even gives us all a choice with Him. Other places in the world don’t have it so good…Yet they do have a choice on God… I bet you no one who reads this will be able to tell me where in the Bible Halloween is mentioned or even when the first one took place…? Wait before you Google search it… It was around 609-610AD with Pope Boniface IV (or as I told my son Boneface.) Started to take Pagan temples and make them into Christian worship places. The Roman Catholic Church moved the celebration from original dates to Pagan holiday dates as to bring non Christians in. All souls’ and all saint’s day originated in May. Now known as Halloween the date has changed as well.  But really enough about that. I have been thinking a lot about these thing as I know my church is having a Celebration for Halloween to do the same bring people in. My Church also puts up Christmas trees all over the place to fit in and they are pretty and it is tradition. HUH… It is really messing with my mind. I remember when I learned about the yule log and how all these wonderful traditions started. Believe it or not… Brownies. Yup you got it. The little girls who sell cookies. ( Are these made with real girl scouts?Adam’s Family movie ) I remember carving an apple and letting it dry to become a witch. Thinking how cool witches are and learning more about them. Being a Sunday School teacher and a White/Green Witch. ( not practicing black or evil) It was fine because I wasn’t hurting anyone… Or was I…? Do you believe God exists…? If you do then it is hurting someone. And if you teach your child about something and you are not complete and thorough… You open the door for them to learn more on their own. I did… My is is now because of me. But, let me not be too hard on myself or you if you are practicing Halloween… I mean following along with the rest of the world…I mean keeping tradition…No I mean worshiping a false god…no I mean celebrating a holiday…WAIT LET GOD BE CLEAR ABOUT THIS… NOT ME… ( oh and if you are gonna say that was for the Jews and it is Old Testament) Let me first say; Hebrews 13:8 God is the same yesterday today and forever. But, instead of the Scriptures we all know form the OT. What say the NT… Please God speak to their hearts…

1 Thessalonians 5:21-22   Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. KJV

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. KJV

1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: KJV

2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath
light with darkness. KJV

  Oh and I know throw at me ( how funny I just realized it is 10:31of 1 Corinthians…I never put it together…maybe I should celebrate that!!!)
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31… Does that mean we can sin and say I did it for God’s glory look how many people I told about the Lord when I was drunk…High on drugs… overeating… while I was on a porn site, while i was lying, cheating, stealing…? Please that list could go on forever. Don’t twist Scripture to suit yourself. This is not me pointing the finger. I truly love you. I am not celebrating, I live in a world that does. If you do that is great stop by I will give you candy and scriptue. Come over on Christmas Because I really go all out that day to celebrate the Lords Birth. Even though I celebrate it everyday!!! God is Good, God is great, God knows you and my fate!!! Hallelujah to the Risen Lamb. Today might have been His real birthday if you look at Scripture. Read see the weather conditions…  God’s grace, peace, light, and love to you. In Jesus’ Service Doreen   ✞  ✞  ✞
P.s. If this offends you or you don’t wanna be told you better look at your heart not mine… God may just be talking to you. I am writing all this because yesterday I was messaged some things on Facebook from an old friend and she thought I was judging her. This is not judging you. please don’t uninvite me to your party because I love to celebrate the Lord everyday and in all things. does that mean I will have a Christmas tree NO. It means I will have a beautiful lighted manger…If I was rich it would be bigger!!!
LOL O:) I’m not gonna proof read
