Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.
God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.
He open you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff -- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.
Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.
I liked this enough to share with all the pumpkins in my patch.
Happy Fall, Ya'll!!!!!
