    Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in,
    and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens 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. This was passed on to me from another
    pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin. I liked this enough
    to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

    What a great sentiment and so useful as we approach the Halloween season once again.

    I have to preach to the kids on the Sunday of Halloween at church and I think I shall use this as an illustration if I may?

    Then there'll be lots more "pumpkins" in my UK patch too!

    God bless and thanks again

    Just to tell you I did a talk for the kids in church today, using a pumpkin and the thoughts you shared with us on the board a while back.

    Everyone really liked it and I think we sent home lots of new pumpkins for God!

    Bless you, again, for sharing this with us. It was truly inspirational.

    Love and hug
