Fruit of the Spirit

Things I desire to be, characteristics I long to possess... one fruit that begins with love, a result of walking with the Lord and of nurturing a relationship with Him. I can't grow the fruit myself, I can simply offer the soil of my life to God and keep my soul watered by staying in His word. May all that grows bring glory to God alone.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23 (WEB)

The photo of the lovely, wild berries is from one of our many day trips to the mountains. We picked *so* many berries that day, but very few were remaining by the time we got home.{smile} Fun times and a good memory...

Wishing you peace, friends!

I use the World English Bible (WEB) for my word pictures because it is a version in the Public Domain. The name "World English Bible" is trademarked. More information can be viewed here.
