Tonight we focused on the pumpkin parable. We got a big pumpkin to carve, and we used Scripture through each step to show how we are just like that pumpkin. We are filled with nasty "gunk" on the inside until we let Jesus come in to clean us out. Once He does, He comes to reside within us so His light can then shine through us.
I did the whole fall celebration thing by cutting up apples to dip in hot caramel sauce. We also had hot apple cider to drink. Tonight was the fall festival at church where Mike has been the driver for the annual hayride. However, the church built soccer fields this summer where the hayride took place, so this year the hayride was out. With me still recovering from sickness and David a bit injured, we stayed home this year. I hope it turned into a memorable night for the boys, though. Mike and I enjoyed it. :)
