Jack-O-Lantern Poem For Christians/Friday Giveaway

Recently our church had a Fall Family Fun Night. This is the jack-o-lantern that was used as an illustration for the devotion. I don't have the material that was used for that particular devotion, but I found a poem that I'd like to share. I hope you enjoy it.

Jack O'Lantern Poem

I am a Jack O'Lantern
My lights will shine so bright
For I'm a Christian pumpkin
My symbols tell what's right.

My nose is like the cross
On which our Savior died
To set us free from sin
We need no longer hide.

My mouth is like a fish
The whole wide world to show
That Christians live in this house
And love their Savior so!

The story starts at Christmas
My eyes are like the star
That shone on Baby Jesus
And wise men saw from afar..

My color, it is orange
Just like the big bright sun
That rose on Easter Day
Along with God's own Son!

And so on Halloween
Let's set our pumpkins out
And tell the trick or treaters
What God's love is all about!

I hope you enjoyed this Jack O'Lantern poem. Isn't it wonderful that someone thought of a way to use a simple Jack O'Lantern to teach about Christ? I do not know the name of the author of this poem, but I know that she was a pre-school teacher.

Now, for Friday's giveaway! This weekend I will be giving away this neat Backyardigans interactive book/game. It talks, sings, and there is even a game that you can play with it. If your child is a Backyardigans fan, they will love this book.

All that you have to do to have a chance to win is pick a number between 1 and 40. Whoever comes closest to the number picked by going over--wins the book. You can pick up to three numbers, but you can't choose a number that someone has already picked.

I will choose a number via sometime after midnight Sunday night. I will notify the winner on Monday. Good luck to all who participate, and thanks for stopping by my blog.
