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 share it with all the pumpkins in my Blog patch.

Happy Fall Y'All,

I'll never look at a pumpkin the same...and this is a great way to spin pumpkin-carving to my kids!

Isn't this a wonderful illustration! It's very popular around here. I even saw it demonstrated at a women's meeting recently. Powerful!

Hey KJ,

Thanks for stopping by...I love your site, and would love to visit your store...too bad Cali is soooooo far from Ft. Lauderdale.
