It's Pumpkin Time!

How adorable are these little guys?
I love fall--the dazzling leaves, the crispness in the air, the return of football season.  But my favorite part of all--the beautiful PUMPKINS!  

If you're a pumpkin fan like me, I have great news: the food industry has found a way to cram pumpkin into just about anything.  Today at Trader Joe's I found: Pumpkin Spiced Chai, Pumpkin Cream Cheese, Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Bars, Pumpkin Oatmeal, Pumpkin Scones, Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix.  And an assortment of actual pumpkins.   

At TJ's, you're not just buying a pumpkin.
You're buying a Fall Fantasy. 
I'm a pretty discriminating pumpkin picker. I like to find the really, really weird ones.  Bright orange with lime green ribbons.  Sunshine yellow with a smidgen of coral.  White frost with green stripes. Bumpy. Portly. Scrawny.  

Each one unique and beautiful in its own way. 

I love that God feels the same way about us.  He not only created each of us to be perfectly unique, he thought about and planned each of us long before we were born. 

 "Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations—that’s what I had in mind for you."  Jeremiah 1:5 MSG
