What is it about the pumpkin?
It is not only about the pie or the goodies. It is all about the seeds of thanksgiving.
What is fall without pumpkin?
It is not only about the planting and the harvesting of the crops. It is all about giving thanks for a bountiful life.
What is Halloween without pumpkin?
It is not only about Jack-O-Lantern and the whole lot of creepiest tell-tales of  the underworld. It is about giving a shade of light to darkness.
What is life without pumpkin?
It is not only about the veggie and it's ability to conquer hunger. It is about God's blessing and caring for his people not to go hungry. 
Thank you for the Pumpkin!

Hi Ruthi, What a neat post... Yes---I love Pumpkins in the Fall also. I decorate with them ---but still use the orange ones. I'm not sure I like those white ones yet.... (Too old-fashioned)......

One thing which I do LOVE: Pumpkin Ice Cream... Yum Yum...

Happy Halloween.
