Sunday Musings - Pumpkins

This thought was shared in one of those forward-it-to-everyone emails, so I'm not sure who originally wrote it. Just thought I'd share it with y'all now that some cooler weather has arrived here and I can truly say that fall is in the air.

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.

I hadn't seen this - thanks for sharing it :) (The idea of having my seeds scooped out made my tummy feel a bit funny though!!)

Very nice comparison! I want to continue to be willing for His work!

I hadn't seen this in a few years so it was great to have it refreshed and of course I have never seen it coupled with a lovely photo. I may have to use this for a Monday Musing (will link back to you, my dear)
