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.'

This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

A friend sent this to me and I wanted to share it with you. The pumpkin's eyes are supposed to blink but I don't know how to make that work on blogger, but he's still cute anyway. Atlanta had the most beautiful weather on Sunday. For me that's like getting a gift after all of the rain that soaked us the last few months. Alas, the rain is moving back into our area. Let's hope it doesn't rain on the little trick or treaters Friday...but there's always chocolate to look forward to, right! :)

All the autumn leaves are out here, the ones that will turn anyway. The rest of the trees won't. But it's beautiful, I can only imagine how pretty it is there.
