I am becoming more and more aware of the world around me every day. My community is not a Christian community, and that is becoming painful more obvious on a daily basis. They recently opened up a psycic shop down the street from my house, my sons school is celebrating day of the dead instead of halloween, and every other house has colored flags hanging out front. These colored flags have been hanging around my community since before we moved into our house last year, and while they always made me uneasy, I never knew what they were. Well, last month we got a new neighbor, and she hung these flags in the trees between our properties. They are directly outside of my living room window. The more I was forced to look at them, the more uncomfortable I got. So I started doing some research. They are Tibetan Prayer Flags... They are a form of Buddhism prayer. I don't know if any other communities are running ramped with these flags like mine, but I would really just love to join together in prayer about this. I want to be a light in my community, but I don't want to move forward without God. I want to draw these people in, not push them away. Please pray with me about this.
