Paper Bag Pumpkin With a Special Meaning

October 27, 2009

We created this craft with our 4-year-old sunday school class also. We told them then and Meara today how we are a lot like pumpkins. Jesus picks us out like pumpkins in a field. He "washes" all the dirt off and removes all the "yucky stuff" called sin from the inside. He carefully removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, and fear. He replaces them with the seeds of faith, hope and love. His light is placed in our hearts to shine for the whole world to see just like a candle inside a pumpkin.

Thats very true. I am trying to help my children have fond memories of this season like I do.
By the way something I noticed in the pictures is the 3rd picture looks a lot like George Clooney. I actually thought thats who it was at first lol
