Are you a Pumpkin?

I received this story from my former MIL, who is a wonderful woman. I think it’s great and wanted to share this with you. I can’t give specific credit to the author or the photographer because it’s one of those “email” things. Hope you are a pumpkin, too 🙂 ……. Rosie

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 some of the pumpkins in my patch. Happy Fall!
