Spiritual Sundays ~ Naming the Plants!
But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, He will produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control
The last box was unpacked and we were amazed at how everything easily fit into place at Carrie's duplex. The fun of decorating this last week led us to thrift stores and garage sales. We chose a retro theme and got excited when we found a tablecloth and throw pillows in rich colors of burnt orange and olive greens to go with the dark wood. We finished our theme with new plants we found at the corner market: trailing pathos and a four foot Palm. This morning we purchased an unusual succulent at a garage sale.
I've been studying Galatians this week and suggested that we name the new plants after the fruits of the Holy Spirit. I've been reading a book about worship. The author wrote about how she wanted to trade in her harsh personality trait for a more gentle one so she worshipped God for His attribute of gentleness. It worked!
The guys who sold us the succulent remarked at how prolific it had become just recently! We named that one "love." There is always room for more love! Love makes a home.
