Reminds me of something I read:
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.
Happy Fall Everyone!
