Still playing make believe.

For the past seven years, our church has had a Harvest Hoedown. Nearly everyone in the congregation pitches in.

Before the fun starts, David fills us in one last time. We’re reminded why we’re there and we ask God to bless what we’re doing. It’s for His glory, not ours. We want everyone to know they’re welcome.

All ages

are welcome. And all ages pitch in.

We have clowns

and games


and critters to pet.

We have fun houses.

and fun kids

and cowboys, ready to teach you how to rope.

I’m not sure who had the most fun, the workers or the guests, but I didn’t hear one person who wished they weren’t there. I expect there are plenty who’ll wish they had been.

Our only objective was to share Christ’s love.

I’m hoping we did a pretty good job of it. Because, when you come right down to it, what else is worth it?

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
