A lady recently being baptized was asked by a co-worker what it was like to be a Christian. She replied, 'It's like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off you may have gotten from the other pumpkins. Then he cuts the top, scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate and greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.
Passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now you pass it on to all the pumpkins YOU know.
