From One Pumpkin To Another!

A woman was asked by a coworker, 'What is it like to be a Christian?' The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'

Cute - and a clever visual!

I like that idea of Christ's light shining out of our smiling faces!

I too have heard this but I love to hear it again as a reminder! Do the Irish decorate for Halloween at all or is this an American past time!

You can call me a pumkin anytime...lol.
This is a wonderful way to redeem the season that others make ugly.

I always love hearing this little story. I am proud to call myself one of God's pumpkins.
If you don't mind I might put the little story up on my blog.
