Through The Eyes of a Child

So, as I said, I had Christmas on my mind yesterday.

Imagine my surprise when I saw my son's pumpkin.  He, all on his own and without consulting anyone, decided to carve a nativity scene on his pumpkin.

This was his first year actually carving by himself -- he's 9 -- and he did it freehand.

Let your eyes adjust, and you'll see a stable shape and then the three figures underneath, two even with praying hands, one in a manger, even the north star in the sky:

I know, I know . . . spoken like a proud mommy.  Well, I guess I am!

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God ~
even in the surface of a pumpkin.

Merry Halloween!

Renee, come over to BHG to see my kitty pics (on yesterday's roll call). We got 2 6 week olds!


That just makes my heart melt. He certainly has his heart in the right place.
