Of Blogging and Pumpkins


I have a favorite blog that I love to read. Typically the blogger writes once a week or so, and I happily check in every day to see if she’s written anything new.

Much to my disappointment, she hasn’t written anything for over a month. I’ve been thinking about what a let down this is, and in my self righteous frustration I decided that no one should write a blog unless they can commit to keeping it reasonably updated, and if life temporarily gets beyond them, they should let their readers know…not leave them dangling.

As I was stewing over this, I heard that “small still voice” call me a hypocrite. Oh, yes, I guess I forgot. I too have a blog. It’s not much of a blog, but I have had a few more than kind emails lately asking how things are, and gently prodding me for my next blog article.

I am preparing a new blog entry for my fellow flower pressing friends. In the meantime, Here is an interesting “Pumpkin Prayer” for those of you who choose not to celebrate Halloween (like our family), but still celebrate God’s Harvest.

"Pumpkin Prayer"

{cut off top of pumpkin}Lord, open my mind so I can learn new things about you.

{remove innards}Remove the things in my life that don’t please you.Forgive the wrong things I do and help me to forgive others.

{cut open eyes}Open my eyes to see the beauty you’ve made in the world around me.

{cut out nose}I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned my nose at the good food you provide.

{cut out mouth}Let everything I say please You.

{light the candle}Lord, help me show your light to others through the things I do.
Amen
