Fall Chalkboard Pantry Door

It was painful to erase my favorite things for summer from my pantry chalkboard door,
but seasons come and go, and change is good.
My little door has a new look for Fall.



If you can't tell by the photo, it says:

Gods Little Pumpkin


He picks you from the patch and washes you...

cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff...

removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.

Then He carves you a new smiling face

and puts His light inside you to shine

for all the world to see.

I am so thankful He did this for me, and I hope I can be a light in a dark world to shine for Him.

Fall blessings,

Love the Fall blessing! Your Grandson does not try to write on the board?
Loving this weather, had stuff to do at home today, so opened the door for fresh air - after it warmed up a bit. It was a little nippy early morning.
Enjoy your week.

So adorable! The writing on the door doesnt look like it was done in chalk. How did you get it to look that way? I look forward to seeing more of your artwork :)
