31 days intentional - day 5

|love our boys! our oldest and his best friend did a sports card "shop". they passed their own cards out to the kids too :)|
If you haven't been to a Trunk or Treat before, it is an event usually hosted by a church as an alternative to the usual Halloween trick or treating. Vehicles are all parked with their "trunks" decorated and then the kids trick or treat at each vehicle. Our family is blessed to be part of this! Not only is it a safe alternative to the busy streets but more importantly it is a place where we aren't exposed to the scary and unpleasant items usually associated with the evening. The best part of it though is the outreach opportunity.
This is a time when those who may not attend church, bring their children and are treated to free food, hot chocolate (and coffee of course!), more candy, games, bounce houses, face painting...and God's Word.
|the little ones waiting their turn..and seeing who's tallest!|
The best part though is the fellowship. The meeting of new people and old friends. Laughter, fun, encouragement...a light in the darkness.
|love this great family :)|

A fun night...and then it was bed time! ;)
And now comes Thanksgiving!!!
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, ~Hebrews 12:28
