Happy Birthday to me! Well on Wednesday of this week but I did not get a chance to blog until today. My sister Karie sent me this youtube of Elvis, thanks Karie. My little Elvis picked me out a Tinker Bell cake and had his dad help him get it, all on his own!
Happy Halloween! I know it is a day early but we got to dress up at work today and I know I will be busy with Elvis tomorrow. I dressed up in my poodle skirt and saddle shoes, my favorite outfit, to bad I only get to wear it once a year. Elvis was sad this morning, he had wanted me to be Batgirl for Halloween to go with his Batman costume. Maybe I will try to be Batgirl for him tomorrow.
Below is one of my favorite poem about how being a Christian is like carving a pumpkin. I found it on DTLK growing together website a couple years back and have made it a tradition for when we are carving pumpkins. Elvis is understanding Halloween more but he is also getting scared of it and I want him to enjoy the dressing up and the pumpkins and the fall harvest more than the scary parts.
Take away all my sin and forgive me for the wrong things I do.
(Clean out the inside)
Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(Cut the eyes out in heart shapes)
I’m so sorry for turning up my nose to all you’ve given me.
(Cut a nose in the shape of a cross)
Open my ears so your word I will hear.
(Cut the ears shaped like the Bible)-we did rectangles
Open my mouth so I can tell others You’re near
(cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)
Let Your light shine in all I say and do! Amen.
(Place a candle inside and light it)
