halloween...

Yes, the lower case "h" is deliberate ;-)

I really have no interest in halloween.
I made the decision to not acknowledge the topic in my work art program.

This week, after some leave days from work, I returned and was sprung with the news my programs the following day were cancelled, due to a special halloween party. For somebody who deliberately avoids this event, it had me feeling a little anxious. The building was decorated...and if I was a 'celebrator', I would say it was well done. But as a 'see-er' it did not sit well with me...

It put me in that uncomfortable position...where you don't want to participate, but you don't feel you have a good reason to refuse... in the sense you don't want to spoil other peoples' fun...

So what did I do? I prayed. And what happened? I was answered :-) I asked for a specific way to be excused from part of the celebrations. Instead of ME asking, THEY suggested! Only God. So, I had a reasonably good day. The people in my care were given the choice, and only one wanted to continue at the party. In the end, everybody was happy :-)

Never underestimate the power of prayer!
Even a simple, quietly whispered prayer can bring forth a miracle :)
