When I think of the Fruits of the Spirit I always think of spring.
And good things.
And friends that walk the walk and are true examples of Fruits of the Spirit.
My little chalkboard-makin-student asks me repeatedly if I have "something for her to draw". So this time I gave her the Fruits of the Spirit. She gave me back Wonderful!
The ceilings in my house are very tall. They lend themselves perfectly for big pictures/boards/ideas on the upper part of a wall.
So that is where my Fruits of the Spirit has gone to live for the time being.
In my mind the perfect crown for a hutch decorated for spring. How better to celebrate spring than seeing a daily reminder of the fruits of a gentle, loving character?
It's easy to live a few of the "fruits" but harder to live all of them. It is even more hard to live them on a daily basis, not just when things are going well. That's why I love this simple but full-of-goodness chalkboard. It speaks to me each day as I walk past. The Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
As you can see, I continue to change the hutch. I added lavender to it this week. Not only is the color beautiful, but the smell is divine as well. I might have changed the hutch around, but the Fruits of the Spirit remain the crown!
