A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

A Little Pumpkin Story

When you are carving your pumpkin this weekend think about this little story that our Preschool class heard at Church this past week.

All of us are something like a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt you may have gotten on you. The pumpkin is filled with yucky, gooey stuff and when we sin and do wrong, our soul can too look like the inside of a pumpkin. When we open our hearts to God...he opens the top of the pumpkin and scoops out the "yucky stuff." He removes the seeds of unkindness, doubt, hate, greed, and anything that would keep us from loving Him and others. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world." With his light inside of you, and a beautifully carved face, you can let the light of God shine through you for the whole world to see.

Balisha, lovely post. The other day I saw one on a rerun of the Walton's where Grandpa talks about how a burl on a tree is the "disfigured" part, but when cut, planed and polished is a work of special art. He was making the same point you just did. :-)
Thanks for stopping by and talking about the thread cabinet. They are getting very hard to find. I paid only $65 for mine since it was in such bad condition. It's almost finished! I'll be posting photos!
Hope to see you again!

So true. (just make sure the carver of your face has some experience!)
