  1. Can you describe your dream house?

    Mine would be victorian, with a wrap-around porch, turrets, gables, and that feature seen on New England houses..."widow's walk." A gazebo near the house. Or it would be an English country style, or have some Georgian columns and stone-faced. I like these because I like anything that looks historic, or really is historic.

  14. Is Halloween Child's Play or a Serpent in the Garden????

    Halloween, Child’s Play or The Serpent in the Garden? October 14th, 2006 by jet44 This was my child’s English assignment. The students were asked to write a story on the subject of getting rid of a Holiday or adding one and this is what she wrote. I guess when the teacher read this one (no names were given) the class was dumbfounded and speechless. English 11 Holidays 10-6-06 To Whom It May Concern: One of the main holidays in our country is Halloween. I feel that this particular holiday produces a more negative affect than holidays should be allowed. On Halloween nights many kids, young and old, walk up and down streets to collects candy and other goodies from the neighbors. These actions may seem completely harmless when thought of briefly but when the true history of this holiday is investigated further horrible truths emerge. For example the roots of Halloween date back to medieval times. Back then October 31 was considered a day when dead spirits were beli . Back then October 31 was considered a day when dead spirits were believed to return to their homes and when evil practices, such as witchcraft, were most potent. My friends from South Africa lived in an arelived in an area, where on Halloween nights, the cults would gather at graveyards to sacrifice cats and newborn babies to evil spirits. Today many people don’t understand the gruesome nature of this holiday and eagerly dismiss and negative facts against its origin. Today the choice of costumes for Halloween is also a problem for many people. If you’ve ever visited a general store in late September you’ve probably seen the variety of costumes displayed: skulls painted with blood, witch hats and masks, knives, axes etc. On a more serious note store decorations for Halloween usually advertise death and murder. For example Menards in Nebraska shows a skeleton hanging from the rafters by a handmade noose. Who would want their three year old child to be exposed to that degree of terror at such a young age? Decorations like these not only scare children but also teach them that these actions are O.K. and exciting. The problem with Halloween not only lies with its history and advertisement, but also with the safety of communities. One of the activities that troublemaking teenagers like to do on Halloween is pranking. Although this activity is slightly tolerable a very fine line is often crossed. Damage to public and personal property is a major prank that many pranksters try to accomplish on Halloween night. Do you want your children to be out amongst these potential criminals? Worse yet, a part of this crime? Safety is also an issue when addressing Halloween. Children are commonly left alone on October 31st to gather all the candy they can with their friends. Although there is safety in numbers, abductions do occur and are possible at any moment. . Allowing this holiday to remain on our calendars will surely endanger our homes and families to a point we have never reached before. The simple concepts behind Halloween, such as candy gathering and consuming as much as possible is hard on the human body system. High calorie candy is one reason why so many kids today are overweight and proud owners of cavities that require around $100 to fix. Careful consumption of these treats is a very important skill that Halloween clearly destroys. I understand that Halloween has been a trademark of our history and economy for many years, but the strong negativity of this holiday is too much to agree with! An alternative holiday such as a Harvest Celebration could involve dressing up in less terrorizing costumes and having a meal with family and friends. Kids could play games and win small pieces of candy or toys for prizes. All I ask is that you understand the satanic nature of this popular holiday and consider some other possible alternatives that could take the place of this highly controversial holiday www.e-sword.net is a great Bible tool www.answersingenesis.org search this sight on issues of evolution and dinosaurs etc Sincerely,http://jet44.wordpress.com Dear Bast Thank You for your reply. You are right to say to celebrate it would be hypocrisy for me. We did not celebrate it tonight and had an awesome family night just eating Jelly Bellies , a few disagreements (normal of course) and watching "Over the Hedge" which stressed "family". I remember days gone past of dressing up the kids because of social pressure I guess and dragging them house to house as they complain they didnt want to wear their costume and thinking is this for me or the kids. The Lord is convicting me on these matters and we are all in process. Take no offense. Jesus did not come down to earth to condemn us, but to teach us the Truth so we would be set free. Regards
