Good morning, sweet friends!
Won't you join me this morning for a stroll outside by the apple tree?
The tree is filled with delicious apples,
the branches are hanging low burdened under the heavy load.
I think it's time to pick the ripe apples - oh what a tasty harvest we'll have!
As my hand closes around the apple my mind wanders to Galatians 5:22, 23a...
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance."
The tree is overflowing with fruit and it makes me wonder,
is my life overflowing with the fruit of the Spirit?
"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life..."
~ Proverbs 11:30a ~
My family and I will enjoy the harvest of apples
by having apple pie, homemade apple sauce, apple turnovers, apple fritters.
And I wonder if there will be a bountiful spiritual harvest in my life....
I pray there is!
May our lives be full of the fruit of the Spirit.
We are not the only ones that will benefit from the bounty, but also those around us.
Thank you for joining me on my stroll :)
Have a glorious, blessed day!
