From One Pumpkin To Another




~From one pumpkin to another~

A woman was asked by a coworker,

'What is it like to be a Christian?'

The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'

God picks you from the patch, brings you in

and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts

off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.

He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.

Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts

His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.

'This was passed on to me by another pumpkin.

Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.
My friend sent this to me in an e-mail. I liked it so much I thought I would share.
Thank you for being in my pumpkin patch. :)
Hugs~ J.
