Happy Halloween!

We had so much fun Wednesday night for Halloween. Grammie came over to spend the night so that she could keep William at home while we took AM and Jason trick-or-treating with some friends. This was the first time we have attempted trick-or-treating. We have always gone downtown where they have music for the kids to dance to and the stores hand out candy. We never did the waiting in line thing for the candy, for one thing the kids were too small to get the candy and the lines were ridiculously long. It's a zoo, but it's fun for the kids to run around. This year AM has been talking about actually trick-or-treating (I guess she knows about it from school and tv) so we were excited when our friends invited us to go with them. I still figured that it would be more frustrating than fun since AM gets shy and doesn't always do well going up to new people. 

Boy was I wrong! She had so much fun and so did we! These little girls love each other so much; I can't wait until we move into our new house and we will all be neighbors. They each have a little brother who will be in the same grade too but they aren't really to the age where they play with others much yet. It will be fun to watch those relationships develop!

AM has been telling us that she wanted Jason to be a pirate for Halloween. That was the plan until we had a cold snap and I was afraid he would freeze so we pulled out the tiger costume that she wore a couple of years ago and I think he made quite a cute little tiger cub!

The wagon was supposed to be for the little boys but the girls quickly claimed it. 

They were so excited!!

Sweet friends

Trick-or-treating pros by this point!

They didn't want the night to end and are already talking about next year. I have to say I am looking forward to it too, that was so much fun!

Speaking to your soul

My Path to Islam

My entire life I had been confused about Christianity. When I would ask questions to a man of the cloth in different areas of Christianity, nobody seemed to have the answers that satisfied me. So many times I wandered away from God, he'd place someone in my life to bring me back, but I never remained long. At the age of 32, I started a new job and met a Muslim. He never pushed any ideas on anyone. But was willing to answer questions. I felt drawn to this faith and did alot of research. I met more Muslims and asked alot of questions and began reading the Quran. I feel as if I've been asleep for 33 years, now I'm awake!!

How I Did It:

Sometimes the answer becomes so clear. Sometimes something happens deep within that can't be explained. Even though you might have been introduced to Islam in such a simple way, but then a moment of incredible clarity overcame me. I felt like for once in my life I knew what Allah has intended for me. He provided the guiding light on my path. I finally felt complete and whole with Him. Some may call it an "awakening" or "enlightenment". All I know is that it was a feeling that can not be described. It was a very profound moment that occurred as I was reading the Quran. My whole purpose made sense. I will try to continue to follow what He wants me to do and be who He wants me to be.

•Be aware, as you seek the truth on your own journey of spiritual enlightenment, the further you seek for this truth, the more He will reveals many truths. Not only of His own existence, but anything that may be conflicting you. Even if the truth hurts. He promises to always be truthful to us. If finding out the truth hurts, then whatever the issue is was likely the work of Shaytan (Satan). Allah does not want us to hurt. The truth may or may not be as bold as thunder, but can likely be as quiet as a butterfly spoken into your soul.

Reaction From Non-Muslim Friends and Family Members

Lack of education on the faith can create concerns and fear.

Changes I Had to Make in My Life

Wearing hijab and knowing who I'm wearing it for, and no one else
