Sunday Sentiments...Fruit of the Spirit


My Sunday Sentiment 
this weekis being thankful for the blessings of fruit trees!
Our dwarf orange
is producing another bountiful
 year of wonderful fruit even with last winter's lack of rains
and water restrictions since last January!
The oranges are just ripening
and I was able to pick some early ones
just this week.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 
Paul to the Galatians, Galatians 5:22-23

Also out in our backyard, we have a lemon and a lime tree.
(You can just see the lemon in the left photo, top, above.)
Sometimes the lime gets cross-pollinated as we can't
get the trees far enough apart in the backyard, so we
often get limons, but they still taste good!



 My daughter went with me to Lowe's one day in the spring
and
we came across some apple trees.
She was excited as the type was one which could 
withstand our summer heat
so we brought one home.
It is still a baby
so...
no fruit on it yet!
She is waiting with bated breath.
The apple has to be a little older and it needs colder winters
to get it producing.
We will be putting ice on it, like our lilac, to help it along.

Later on, in late January to mid-February,
I go through
orange withdrawl
when our tree runs out.
But, 
while there is fruit,
life is good!




Bountiful harvest blessings to you this month
and through the Holidays!
