What would fall be without pumpkins? We don't believe in celebrating Halloween at all, so no jack-o-lanterns for us. Instead we used the carving of the pumpkins as a teaching time. We are a lot like pumpkins until we ask Jesus into our hearts. He comes in and scoops all the bad stuff out (scrap out the inside of the pumpkin) and fills us with His love (cut circles, diamonds etc in the pumpkin and put a candle inside ) so that we can shine with His light to the rest of the world.Today just happened to be my sweet friend Candice's birthday! We made her a pumpkin pie, complete with candles!
I had such a nice time visiting with my friends and watching our children have pure and simple fun together. What a nice way to ring in a new season.
