A lady recently received her 6 year token and was asked by a coworker what it was like to be in (a 12 step program) and work the program.
She replied "It's like being a pumpkin; God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off that you may have gotten from the pumpkins patch. Then he cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., then he carves you a new smiling face and puts his light inside of you for all the world to see."
