It was fall again, excitement was in the air,
Décor and decorations were seen everywhere.
Some were pretty, pumpkins and such,
But other decorations were a bit too much.
Squirmles and Squirrel’s mom tried to explain,
“It’s important to protect what you let into your brain.
To see such images is damaging to you,
You can’t always forget and undo.
“Once you see something it can stain your heart,
God says we are to be different, set apart.
To join in such gore and evil fun,
Isn’t right and shouldn’t be done.
“You are God’s children don’t you see,
He’s entrusted you in this short time to your father and me.
To raise you and protect you the best we can,
To help you find your way in God’s special plan.
“Halloween and decorations seem innocent I know,
But once it’s in your heart it will begin to grow.
You can’t un-see what has been seen,
You have to be careful during Halloween.”
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23
