Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch and washes all the dirt off of you. He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed. 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 to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass on to another pumpkin
