Halloween Poem to share with your sisters.

I am going Visiting Teaching tomorrow and I had forgotten until right this minute. Obviously I don't like to go empty handed, and I remembered that I had picked up some cute little pumpkin luminaries at the first of this month for the sisters that I visit. Ok, so I wanted something to go with it that was cute and Halloweenie, and since I am ready to go to bed and don't have time to come up with something on my own, I googled and came up with a cute little Halloween poem that was intended for young women. It came from and it suggested that it could be rewritten to adapt for other purposes. So I adapted and this is what I came up with. Sorry it is so late, but you can still take a little Halloween treat over to your sisters even if you have already done your Visiting teaching. The following is my version:

At Halloween and all year through
we want to express our "love” for you,
For all the things that you have done
to make this world a better one.

Since this is the time for goblins and bats,
Halloween spirits and spooks and cats,
Weird happenings and witches brew,
These are the things that we wish for you....

May the only ghost that comes to stay
Be the Holy Ghost to guide your way.
May the only spirit you chance to meet,
Be the spirit of love and friendship sweet.

As we come to visit and talk with each other
About the gospel of our elder Brother,
We hope that you feel the spirit and love,
That can only come from our Father above.

These are our Halloween wishes to you
And may God bless you in all that you do.

I am back!

Wow, I need a new banner or blog header for this blog. It is just a bit dated, in fact, I created it for July. Where has the time gone?

I will refer you to my other blog.... for an update on what has been going on and why I have not posted. Needless to say, there won't be any new ideas for alittle while as I am devoting my full time and energy to create some cute things for a couple of Christmas boutiques that I will be participating in. I will be at the Little Dickens Craft fair and Boutique on Dec. 5th, and I am sending some of my aprons and things down to my sister who wants some things to display for a couple of boutiques that she is doing in some Southern Utah fairs.

For details of the Little Dickens Fair, go to the above link. If you want to know about the Christmas Fairs in Southern Utah that My sister is doing, comment, and I will get that information to you.

I will not be leaving this blog barren for long, once I get on top of all my projects, I will be back, and I have tons of great ideas I have been finding to post.

I hope all is well with you and the sisters you teach and that you will all have a Happy Halloween..., finding the "Spirit" of the season.

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
