A few weeks ago I was walking through the alley into the backyard with Benjamin. It was dark and the alley and the yard are not that well lit. Although we were holding hands, Ben didn’t want to keep going. I asked him why and he replied that he thought there might be witches back there! I told him that there weren’t likely any witches in our back yard and then I asked him if he had given his life to Jesus. He said he had. So I told him that when we give our lives to Jesus he gives us his Holy Spirit to live within us. So he had the Holy Spirit living in him and if any witch saw him coming with the Holy Spirit living in him, she’d scream and run away! He thought that was pretty cool and was quite happy to come into the back yard with me.
