It seems like this year especially there has been a huge debate within the Christian community about the "controversial" holiday of Halloween. Maybe its because its on a Sunday this year that has people all up in arms.
Personally, I don't see what the big deal is. I think if you choose to focus on how some people use the day to celebrate "evil" then you will think the day itself is "evil". If you look at how fun the day can be...the candy, the costumes, enjoying your neighbors, seeing smile on kids' faces you will see that Halloween is simply a fun day for people. I honestly don't think that we need to take away from this day. We need to look at life through the eyes of a child and experience the fun that each day brings!

its just another number...

I'm in my final days of 33. I have to say that this has been an incredible year of growth for me. I've really started to take my life back and have seen some positive changes. I am incredibly happy with my weight loss of the last few months and am excited to continue to see that scale go down down down. I did not quite reach the goal that I had by this date, but progress is progress and I just need to keep pressing on.
I have also been experiencing a re-kindled love for my Savior and have taken time to experience God more in my day to day living. While, I'm so far from having a perfect relationship with God, I am enjoying being receptive to God's love for me.
Also during my 33rd year, I have had a resurgence of a social life. I've had some amazing new people come into my life and old friendships have deepened. I feel so incredibly blessed with the people that have come into my life and I do feel that this year has been so much richer because of them.
So thanks 33 for being so nice. I'm really looking forward to your friend 34 and seeing that this next year of life holds!
