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.
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.
