“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Tricks or Treats...FUN

Here it is Nov 1st and Dan is starting his new job today, life is full of change. First let me say how thankful I am to God for His never failing provision and wonderful goodness, My God is an Awesome God!
Well since today is Nov 1st that means yesterday was Halloween. For Halloween we had a scary skeleton-mainly scary because the suit he wanted from Wal-Mart was to small. I wanted to make him one but he was sure to buy one was better, so I gave in!

We also had Dora, Ella was dead set on being Dora although she would be quick to tell you she did not have Dora hair...she refused to wear the wig! She did let me make her costume and I had fun doing that although I did wait until the day of Halloween to finally pull it all together. Yesterday I was painting canvas shoes, dying her skirt...sometimes I think I'm crazy
The amount of candy we now have in the house is obscene! When I asked Ella who was going to eat all the candy in the bag she was dragging while saying HEAVY she replied "I don't know"

But the scariest thing I saw on Halloween by far was the "Crazy Cat Lady" aka Rachel Capps...yes my sister. She won the office costume competiton I don't think they have ever seen anything quite like this before...that's our Rachel!

Ella found her so scary she refused to even hug her
