A small child had recently been baptized.
One of her classmates asked her what it was like to be Christian.
She was caught off guard and didn't know how to answer
when she looked up and saw a jack-o-lantern on the desk.
She answered, "It's like being a pumpkin"
Her classmates asked her to explain that!
"Well, 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 the seeds of doubt, hate, greed,
and all those other bad things.
Then he carves you a new smiley 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!"
Check out these AWESOME pumpkin patterns!
