Fruits of the Spirit…..

I came across THIS picture on pinterest which inspired me to write on rocks.  Purchased this bag of rocks from a local discount home store at a whopping $1.99. 

Grabbed my Dr.Ph.Martin’s Pen-white liquid paint to write with.  I like this brand, because it’s a bit chalky….thicker.

Grabbed my tiniest brush and proceeded to write.  I had to apply a 2nd coat because one coat just wasn’t enough.

Galatians 5:22-23
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.

Wrote out the fruits…these 9 first.

But I had 15 more rocks to write on.   So, I added a few more to the list:
Initial Fruits:
  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-Control
Added these to the list:
  • Honor
  • Humor
  • Grace
  • Return
  • Respect
  • Give
  • Donate
  • Gratitude
  • Encourage
  • Honesty
  • Thanks
  • Humility
  • Compassion
  • Forgive
  • Hope
Cuz….well, I like these words too…especially when I can experience these from others….or display.  Cuz sometimes I forget.


And the greatest of these is LOVE. 

Placed them all in a glass bowl to be seen daily…cuz Lord knows I need it Smile

And if you’re not so inclined to write out these words you can do your own version….like: Art words, Inspiration words, Funny words, Spanish words.  So many words, so many options!!!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
