I have a little secret to tell you.. I used to dread Halloween.
We never celebrated Halloween as our older children were growing up. It was just a holiday that we chose as a family not to participate in.
Over the years I have found my heart softening and God has spoken to my heart clearly that I am to be a blessing to others and not be rejecting of them. Oh, I didn’t reject them on purpose, but my behavior was less than loving for sure.
These Halloween Printables: Blessing Cards are a great way to show your love of Christ while still allowing the children a bit of silly fun!
With the decision to love rather than fear came some confusion. How can I be a blessing without fully participating in Halloween?
About 5 years ago I determined that we would open up our front door to trick or treaters. Before that, we made it a habit to not be home during the doorbell ringing hours.
I know…how scroogish can you get?!
We decided that we would shower our visitors with love and praise, even when the scariest of costumes came a knocking. We would give handfuls of candy…
A Halloween Blessing…
We decided that we would tie some cute printable blessings onto the candies we handed out..just to remind children that they are loved and we were happy to see them.
So if you have ever felt as I and after reading about how we never celebrated Halloween, print out the above fun printable and give out to your trick or treaters!
You will be blessed yourselves to see the joy that those littles are having.
