A Pumpkin Parable

A lady was asked by a co-worker what it was like to be a Christian. She replied, "It's like being a pumpkin: God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off you may have gotten from the other pumpkins. Then He cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

I love the book by Liz Curtis Higgs, The Pumpkin Patch Parable.

It is such a sweet little book and a great reminder of what God does for us.

Missing Emma's sweet baby girl face this fall.

Check out this blog post for an opportunity to help with something amazing...


  1. Cute post and thanks for the reminder. I need to find that book for next year.

  2. We have that book and read it every fall and in between because my little girl reads Christmas books, Easter books, fall books all year long.

  3. Sweet parable. Cute picture of the kids! Missing spunkey Emma with you.
    Love and hugs and prayers,


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
