Pumpkins, God and a Delightful Mess

Oct 31 2011

My Mom found this (on the internet I think--so amazing having a hip and cool Mom).  I can take no credit for it, but I sure like it.  

“Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.  He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.  Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.”

Okay, I don’t actually like the part where God scoops the icky stuff out of me.  He has been doing that a lot lately.  It hurts, it is messy and unpleasant, but I do want to shine brightly and I know it is all part of the process.  I am trying to find joy in the process.  I remember my daughter's first pumpkin carving event.  She certainly did not have the same perspective that most of us do.  I love her joy amidst the mess.  May God grant me and you a new perspective through the process that will better let His joyful light shine.
