I knew yesterday when I posted that photo that it could raise some eyebrows and some controversy but I was willing. I agree with Bobbie who commented on yesterday's blog... I'm not a fan of halloween either. But I've also seen how this day with all its trimmings can be used divide believers... even in my own church... and I'm not a fan of that either. But the devil is. So I've decided that I am a fan of using lemons to make lemonade and taking what the enemy has intended for evil and instead using it for good! So if I can use a pumpkin with a smiling face to share the love of Christ with those who know no difference... I'm all for it.
And as I thought about yesterday's post and how much my granddaughters enjoyed the story about how we are like a pumpkin who God puts His light in so He can shine in us and through us... I decided to take it a step further. I created this coloring page for your kids to color and learn from. So as a mom, you could use the story from yesterday's post and the coloring page from today and have fun reminding your children of the love and light of Christ that dwells within us. Click here for the full size page... print and enjoy.
Lord, I may not celebrate halloween but I do celebrate You... the One who created the day and I reclaim the pumpkin and the smiling face upon it for Your glory! Amen.
