Daily Living Made Easier

Halloween is only a few days away! The holiday season always seems to be extra busy for many of us busy with the Sandwich Generation issues of caring for elderly parents and grandkids. What with fun fall festivities like corn mazes and pumpkin decorations activities for grandparents and their grandchildren, I'm definitely juggling extra hard this month.That's why I try to plan ahead, like grabbing my bags of candy while out shopping as well as stopping in at the Christian book store early to pick up goodies to give to the cute little trick or treaters, along with some great candy items, in order to share the Word of God with each of them.

Last week I showed you the Halloween bookmarks with encouraging Bible verses I'll be giving out this year. Today, I wanted to feature the regular "pass-it-ons" I also bought. I'll use these for the older kids. That way I also have extras in case I run out of the bookmarks. They are all bright, cheerful and encouraging with uplifting Bible verses to tell the kids about the God Who loves them.

Encouraging Bible verses that tell kids God loves them are great for trick or treaters

 

The Lord your God loves you.

Deuteronomy 23:5 (NIV)

For us there is one God, the Father…and one Lord, Jesus Christ…through Whom we live.

1 Corinthians 8:6 (NIV)

Aren't those great? If I have any left over, I can add them to my stockpile of cards I like to use when traveling. They are perfect for leaving a thank you along with my tip at the hotel or restaurant. They're also wonderful ways to minister to the homeless, coupled with a McDonald's gift card. 

As a busy baby boomer caring for elderly parents and helping with grandkids, I don't have the option of traveling overseas to the mission field. But that's OK, because we are each surrounded by hearts in need of God's love, right in our own neighborhood. And what a fun way to share that love with encouraging Bible verses, lots of yummy candy, and big smiles this Halloween. How about you? Got some more ideas to share? We'd love to hear them. Also, don't forget to pop over to Internet Cafe Devotions for more inspirational Bible verses for this Word-Filled Wednesday in Autumn.

  4. The bookmarks are great. I never thought of doing that. I agree we have a mission field probably in our own backyard and don’t realize it.

  5. Hi From The Heart – I have heard a couple of pastors point to Acts 1:8 – “you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth,” and equate Jerusalem to our own city, Judea to our state, Samaria to our country and the ends of the earth to everywhere else. Some of us will stay local – others go far away, but we all can be blessed by being His witnesses. And, of course, you and I also get to enjoy the blessing, as do many others of our friends, of doing so everywhere through the internet! 🙂 Isn’t it awesome!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  6. I love your pictures and verses, Kaye.

  7. Ooooh, Lori, that sounds awesome! I’m planning an article on fall harvest Scarecrows activities for grandparents and their grandchildren and that would be a great complement – I’ll definitely watch for it. Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

  8. Great idea. You know, my girls, now in their 20s still talk about a house we went to one Halloween. They handed out bible verses like that. What a great evangelism tool!

    I love those little ‘pass it on’s’ cards!

    Not many of us can up and go off to other far-away places for the Lord… but the real mission field really starts at home, ie unsaved children, relatives, neighbours etc. You are doing a great job Kaye!

    Blessings and happy WFW!

    oh i like that Bass one! haven’t seen it before!

  9. Isn’t that cool, Amydeanne. I really liked it as well. Especially perfect for the older trick or treaters! 🙂

  10. Hi Amanda, Thank you 🙂 Have a blessed and safe holiday weekend! 🙂

  11. Hi Whidbey Woman, Thanks for sharing that story – how awesome! It’ll be exciting to someday be in heaven and see what wonderful crops have come from all the different tiny “seeds” of the Word of God that have been spread all around us. I can’t wait! 🙂

  12. Hi Cathy, Thank you 🙂 Have a blessed and safe holiday weekend! 🙂

  13. Great cards…we do not do Halloween very much in Australia and being brought up in Christian circles it was definitely not encouraged so it is interesting to see it from a different perspective.
    Needless to say the kids here are catching on and coming begging but not the dressing up etc. This year I had just cut my arm, so we had to say sorry the lady is sick.
    Lovely cards and nice to see something positive. I happened on the Martha Stewart blog and her house decorations for Halloween were just horrible ….in my ‘umble opinion.

  14. Hi Ozjane – Very interesting! Some of the trick or treaters who come don’t bother with much of a costume, but most love the costumes as much-or more-than the candy. 🙂 I hadn’t seen Martha Stewart’s blog so I took a peek. I have to admit, I definitely prefer the softer, gentler Halloween pumpkin table decorations my grandkids and I enjoyed. 🙂 Have a blessed week.
