To My Favorite Pumpkins
God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins.
Then He cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all to see.
It is our choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and be something new and bright.
This is a shot of our little Fall harvest activity (well it was really our sunday school lesson at home last week). The poem is a topic discussed in my upcoming book. It was fun to carve the pumpkins in conjunction with reading the poem.
