Gal: 5:22
This is dedicated to all those who have shown me the fruits of the spirit here in this beautiful place called PoetBay.

Fruits of the Spirit

I am walking through life's garden
Picking fruits along the way.
Patience, Joy, Peace, and Kindness
Have filled my basket today.
As each day brings me a new journey,
I open my life to receive
Precious gifts of the Creator.
He fills my life with these:
Faithfulness, Goodness, Gentleness
And Self Control
And his Love which endures forever
Is the bountiful bowl
That holds my Sweet Lord's offerings
Deep inside my heart
I only carry them with me
So that I can do my faithful part
To offer them to the ones I meet
Throughout my time on earth
I only want to feed the world
The realities of a brand new birth.
Enjoy each fruit as it will leave
it's fruitful seeds within you
And you will sow them one by one
Along your journey too
Creating a garden of fruit to feed
The people of this land
And leave this weary world in
His Mighty, Holy Hands.

This was a really good text. The rhytm is great and the choice of words as well.

As an ateist, I though have a little difficulty with buying the Creator. ;)

But I myself write texts about the Lord all the time so. :)
