Being a Christian...Is like being a pumpkin. God picks you
from the patch, brings you in, washes all the dirt off 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
He helped 2yo Angel Baby carve her pumpkin before heading off to work. We had a second chance to do the prayer and carve a pumpkin accordingly!
(Hint: The Christian face matches the prayer)
We named him "Bible Pumpkin"~
As I carve my pumpkin help me say this prayer:
Open my mind so I can learn about You;
(Cut the top of the pumpkin)
Take away all my sin and forgive me for the wrong things I do.
(Clean out the inside)
Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(Cut the eyes out in heart shapes)
I'm so sorry for turning up my nose to all you've given me.
(Cut a nose in the shape of a cross)
Open my ears so your word I will hear.
(Cut the ears shaped like the Bible)
Open my mouth so I can tell others You're near
(Cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)
Let your light shine in all I say and do! Amen.
(Place a candle inside and light it)
