SSIC Challenge ~ Fruit {of the Spirit}

Good morning *Ü*   It’s my pleasure to host the challenge at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenges this week and I hope you’ll come over to play along! 

This summer my family and I spent a week at the beach, and each morning I got up early with lawn chair, Bible and a li'l devotional book in hand, and spent some quiet time at the ocean.  That li'l devotional is a monthly "magazine" by Turning Point (Dr. David Jeremiah who I wake up each morning to on the radio) I believe it was June or July issue called "Fruitopia".  The first half was filled with li'l articles and interesting facts about fruit, and how to apply it to our Spiritual lives.  That’s when I started jotting down notes which led to my devotional today.  (yes, long time comin’ lol)  It’s based on Gal. 5:22-23a "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." And so I challenge you to use FRUIT in your creation (stamps, digis, fruit in your background paper, or charms)  And if you want to keep with the season, pumpkins are by definition fruit as well as other Harvest type produce so those would count as well!  ;) 

You can hop over to our challenge blog to read my whole devotional… and see the lovely inspiration by our Design Team!  One player will win a $15 Gift voucher to our sponsor’s store, Clear Dollar Stamps!

I’ve used raspberries digi and sentiment from the Pears & Raspberries set at Doodle Pantry.  More deets & links below.  See you at SSIC!!  *Ü*
