Uncle Bill Inspiration


Recommended Posts


My great uncle (he's pretty wonderful, but he's great because he's my daddy's uncle, too...) sends me all sorts of "inspirational messages" via email. He's a special man, been to the four corners of the earth visiting children and grandchildren in the service and a testament of faith. He is currently going through a spell of very bad health (dialysis three times a week) and subsequently he and my aunt sold their house and moved to an assisted living complex closer to the hospital and clinic...

Here is his Halloween installment, for all his "little pumpkins":

To all my little pumpkins......

A woman was asked by a coworker, "What is it like to be a Christian?"

The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the

patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then he cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then He carves you a new smiling face

and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

Wouldn’t we all benefit from having our yucky stuff removed?

(Wonderful guy, isn't he?)
