    The fruit of the Spirit has some of the same similarities as natural fruit. It time and the right environment for the fruit to grow. Spiritual fruit Also takes time and the right environment in which to grow. Neither natural or spiritual fruit matures overnight. Interestingly enough both are desirable and will give strength "the one to the body,the other to the spirit

    Thank you JESUS for dying on the cross for my sins. Thank you for saving a wretch like me. I can do nothing without you. I work with the public and it is hard to treat everyone the same but , I do.... I know I am working for the Lord and no one else. I have to remind myself of this. My husband Scott is a great encouragement in my life. He tells me to pray and give this to the Lord. I love him.
