Pumpkin Time

October is just around the corner which brings to my mind, my most favorite Pumpkin delights! Upon a visit to one of my favorite stores (Trader Joe's), I found my treasures! They have Pumpkin cookies, brittle, bread, chips, candy, bread, pasta & sauce... On and on. The list is endless! I left with a cart full ( come visit, anytime.)

This weekend I attended the "Belong Tour,"  a Women's weekend of praise, reflection and study of God's Word. It is the continued journey of " The Women of Faith" ( 20 years). One of the speakers gave an analogy of how a Christian is like a pumpkin. 

She shared how God picks us from the patch, brings us in, and washes off all the dirt.
Then he cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then God carves us into a new smiling face and puts His light inside of us to shine for all the world to see.

God is the only one who can change our heart. But we must become open to Him. Jesus was willing to become messy for us, so that we may become clean. We must have a light inside that truly makes us alive. Jesus said, " I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Gotta love those Pumpkins!!🎃

Have a blessed day, a gift from God!
