happy fall.


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.'


I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch :)
{gotta love forwards at work}

howdy to all my new followers!!!
