one child is home and one child is now well

Children learn more from what you are, than what you teach.
W.E.B. Du Bois


(donning part of her brother’s soon to be halloween costume, the Mayor returns home)


(The sheriff intent on his duties)

I believe that if an angel were to wing his way from earth up to Heaven,
and were to say that there was one poor, ragged boy, without father or mother,
with no one to care for him and teach him the way of life;
and if God were to ask who among them were willing to come down to
this earth and live here for fifty years and lead that one to Jesus Christ,
every angel in Heaven would volunteer to go.
Even Gabriel, who stands in the presence of the Almighty,
would say, “Let me leave my high and lofty position,
and let me have the luxury of leading one soul to Jesus Christ.”
There is no greater honour than to be the instrument in God’s hands of
leading one person out of the kingdom of Satan into the glorious
light of Heaven.

Dwight L. Moody

    Your family has certainly had its share of health issues of late…thankfully everyone is on the mend.

    • The thing is it started with one coming down with the typical daycare crud and in turn, no big deal for that one. The next recipient to pick it up turned theirs into strep and then the last of the three to share the germs turned theirs into a viral fever— one crud, 3 different immunities. The trouble with what was all typical run of the mill ailments now requires the additional Covid testing— when waiting on results, life comes to a screeching halt- no work, no school, no contact, no nothing until 4 to 7 days of the nothingness until one finally gets an all clear— with all running back to back— we’ve spent two weeks at a standstill 😑only to be given a green light.
      I fear however for many now, this will be a normal seesaw if disruption and dread.

    My daughter & son-in-law both dislike Halloween. Neither enjoyed the “costuming” part growing up! When our grand-daughter was born I was delegated official costume maker, (by default because I sew & because I believe that’s the BEST part of Halloween – THE costuming!) I just settled upon this year’s costume and I am excited to be using the sewing machine for something OTHER THAN mask making!!😝😝😝
