    My cousin sent this to me, please forward this to everybody you can. :D

    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.
    >
    > This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is
    > your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.
    >
    > I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my
    > patch. Happy Fall!

    I did just that. We had our WOM (Baptist Women on Mission) lunch today.
    The 2 girls in charge said we were decorating with pumpkins and some of us learned how to make pumpkin 'lanterns' at our WOM retreat last month. So, I made those and we decorated in orange. When I saw the poem last night I understood why we were decorating with pumpkins and read the poem to the ladies at the start of the lunch. Thanks so much for posting! God has great timing.
