It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 10, Page 2, Book 13

The Pumpkin is always oranger on the other side of the patch...

This is just another way of saying the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.  Did you ever go hunting for a pumpkin to take home with you?  It's like hunting for a needle in a haystack.  You think you've found the perfect one then you pick it up and find a bad spot on the bottom.  Oh, there are so many shapes and sizes that it is just so hard to make up your mind.  The little one might be really cute, but the big one is going to show up better.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to pumpkins.  There's the good the bad and the ugly.  It reminds me once again just how fleeting life is. Aren't we all a just a little bit like the lowly pumpkin? We get to shine for a few, brief moments of life and then our light goes out and we're left behind in the dirt. 

Every new today we have is our moment to shine.  Make the most of it!

On the way home today I saw rows of pumpkins at a store for $3.00. I guess this time of year is the pumpkins TIME TO SHINE ~ We can shine if we want to because we are Americans and we should try to stand out by loving others and having faith and hope (but our freedom is ON THE LINE right now)~ GOD BLESS AMERICA! ~ Jean(Rome Ga girl living in Calhoun~~~I have been posting every day on my blog THE ANSWER IS JESUS (Thank you Ma and Jack for your comments)

True - everyone sees and wants what they think is pretty and beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
