Being a Christian is Like Being a Pumpkin

25 Oct

I don’t get a lot of emails from my father and when I do receive one they can be pretty special. 

Today I went to my email and opened this particular email up from his and it instantly made me smile.  I am sure when you take the time to read it you will soon understand and know why.  Simple, sweet yet very much to the point.  God is good and touches us in so many ways!

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.    

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!!
