Visit Your Garden

Visit Your Garden

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience e, kindness, goodness, fidelity, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:1

Each morning, most often before the rest of us were awake; my grandmother would go out to her garden located next door to their home on Tucker Street in Dyersburg to choose some special items for the day. We would enjoy sliced tomatoes at breakfast, vegetables at lunch and still other items at what we called supper in the late afternoon. Sometimes there would be watermelon at others cantaloupes, always beans and potatoes. All summer long she would make that journey and bring her basket filled with goodies back to the kitchen.  The fruit of her garden for the table of her family.  Today as we open a new work week, how about going into our garden of life and see how many of the fruits of the Spirit we have to harvest this week.

Look at your wonderful gifts and choose some of them to bless others with as you move through the week.

Our country is weary of all the election news, why don’t we as Christians share our gifts and offer something better than what we are pelted with all day long. Share a smile, a prayer, a joy, give a thank you and let others see Jesus in you.

I hope it will be as tasty as my grandmother’s garden.

Ivan
