Fruitful Friday

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22
Fruits of the Spirit are evidences of God's Spirit in you. If someone were to look at our lives today, would we mirror these fruits evident of Christ in our lives?
Do we love the way Christ loves?
Do we have joy, no matter our circumstances (my battle today would be getting caught in the rain and a fender-bender)...can I continue to be joyful that everyone is unharmed and not focus on a bumped up fender?
Do we show people our patience when we've run out? Our kindness and self-control with our tongues?
Are we faithful to Christ even among the obstacles put in our path?
Are we gentle, and filled with goodness to people when relationships conflict?
Just some "Fruit for thought" on this fabulous Friday!
Ok so a carrot is not a fruit, but you can't tell me this picture is not adorable!
