Being a Pumpkin


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 liked this enough to share with all the pumpkins in my patch.


Happy Fall, Ya’ll!



Have a happy day!
God Bless.

Katherine

I love that teaching . We go over that each year with the grand kids when we crave pumpkins. I think it is a wonderful illustration of what Christ has done for us. Thanks for sharing this blessing today.
Blessings to you ,

Hello Katherine,
foudn you lovely blog by PEA's corner and 'm so glad I did.
Love that raggedy doll of yours but most of all love your heartwarming words.
By visiting your profile I realize we have some things in commone as I also love roses (hence the name of my blog Rita's Shabby Chic Rose!!!), teasets, home decor, crafting and even a great majority of the movies you listed appear to be among my most favorite ones.
Come and visit my blog at http://www.ritashabbychicrose.blogspot.com
Let me know you dropped by by leaving a sweet thought, just like the one you posted today. That'll certainly make my day!
Blessings

Thanks for visiting. I guess you meant having my profile translated into English, right? Well, I've been thinking of re-doing it only in English. Most of my readers are either from English-speaking countries or speak/understand English. So, perhaps before the end of this week I'll have a new profile widget in English.
Good night (it's past midnight here, better get my White Wednesday pics ready for tomorrow and then go to have some sleep).
Blessings
