are like Jack O' Lanterns*
God picks you from the pumpkin patch and brings you into his home. He
washes off all the dirt on the outside, that you got from being around
all the other pumpkins. He cuts off the top and takes out all the
yucky stuff on the inside. He removes the seeds of sinfulness and
carves you a new smiling face. He then puts his light inside of
you to shine for all to see.
You can either stay outside
and rot on the vine, or have Jesus come inside and become something new and bright!
SHINE for Jesus!
loves you so much! He sent Jesus, his only son, to earth to take the
punishment for the wrong things you do. If you believe in Jesus and follow him, you will never die,
but have everlasting life.
The pumpkin spinner toy is my
gift to you to remind you to shine for Jesus!
Directions to make the toy: Cut out pattern, below. Fold in half. Tape 4-5" thin rubber band to the
inside center of pattern (where rubber band line is marked). Tape pattern
closed on the top and the sides next to the rubber band.
Hold onto both ends of rubber band. Pull slightly and roll between fingers to spin
the pumpkin to put a smile on it and make it SHINE!
