Fruits of the Spirit

Gal 5:22-23

The generous womb of grace
Gives birth to the Fruits of the Spirit" --
Seeds growing Christ in our soul.

So that, the soul
When full of "faith" is
Full of "love."

When full of "love" is
Full of "joy."

When full of "joy" is
Full of "peace."

When full of "peace" is
Full of "gentleness."

When full of "gentleness" is
Full of "goodness."

When full of "goodness" is
Full of "patience."

When full of "patience" is
Full of "self-control."

When full of "self-control" is
Full of "long-suffering."

AND,
When filled with these "fruits,"
The soul walks in the Spirit
With Jesus to the Father.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
