With it being that time of the year when families are buying their pumpkins for Halloween, I thought I would share a story with you I recently received from a listener called "From One Pumpkin To Another."

A woman was asked by a coworker, "What is it like to be a Christian?"  The coworker replied, "It's like being a pumpkin.  God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.  Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.  He removes the seeds of doubt, hate and greed.  Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."
