THE BUZZ ON PUMPKIN...



Have you heard the news???  While the crazy government shutdown and job layoffs are happening, pumpkin is still making the news.  What I heard yesterday was that - SHOCK- the Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks contain no pumpkin.  Yep, NO pumpkin.  Same thing with the Pumpkin donut at Dunkin' Donuts.  And Pumpkin kisses.  To Starbucks defense, they call it Pumpkin SPICE.  So I was just wondering how many other products out there are taking advantage of the fall and our craze with all things pumpkin?

I decided I wanted to try a pumpkin drink at Starbucks and my husband uses it as his second office, so when we went by last night I asked them to make me a Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa.  It was really good! If you are like me and don't do coffee, you should try this!  I knew I was only getting pumpkin spice in my hot chocolate and enjoyed it.

But one of the first things that came to mind as I thought about this was that this happens a lot more than we realize.  And I thought about all the people that wear the name CHRISTIAN.  I try really hard to see others with the eyes of Christ, but sometimes you see such terrible behavior you wonder - WHERE IS CHRIST IN THIS CHRISTIAN?  Then I am convicted myself...
