Sunday Funnies – We Paint Pumpkins!

Our front door is adorned by painted pumpkins. They look like this:


There’s another set of them on the other side of the doorway. For years we’ve painted our pumpkins soon after Thanksgiving. Some years they’ve been red and green, other years we’ve thrown in purple, sometimes (like this year) simply silver and gold. They look like big ornaments as you come up the walk.

They remind me of my new life in Jesus. Only he didn’t paint the outside of me. He made me new all the way to the core.

    How very Martha-Stewart-esque of you! Great idea and (as usual) great spiritual application!

      Ha, that’s probably the only time anyone has compared us to Martha Stewart! This idea just came to my wife one year long ago. She didn’t want to see perfectly good pumpkins go to waste just because Thanksgiving had passed.

  2. We did painted mini pumpkins as table decor one year for Thanksgiving–never thought of putting them out as a Christmas display. Very creative. Have a wonderful Christmas, Tim!

  3. I love this idea! The only thing is that one of my favorite things to do is EAT the Halloween pumpkins…

      Scoop out the inside, paint the outside, problem solved. Just a little Christmas gift from me to you, Rachel.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and Elliott and Gwenny and Baby Simko,

  4. This picture makes me feel happy.
    Christmas Blessings to you and yours! 🙂
