Welcome to another Faith Blog Hop presented to you by Paper Tree House Studio! If you have been following the hop then you should be arriving here from the wonderful Karel's blog. Isn't she just amazing! I love the inspirational music that she has on her blog! If you just came across this hop, then go to My Paper Tree House to catch the beginning of the hop.
I want to thank Nana for allowing me to participate with this wonderful group of ladies. Not only are they talented but they are also wanting to spread the word of God and what better way to do it but their own talents?
Every month a group of bold women gather to make the Name of the Lord famous and to share the talents we have been given by Him. We also like to share a little bit of Truth that we have learned from the Bible and/or a bit about how He has impacted our lives. This month the theme is “The Fruit of the Spirit”.
In Galatians 5:22-23 we find the following definition: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
If you are not experiencing one of the characteristic of His Spirit in your life, pray that the Lord would cleanse you and purify you. He is into the business of completing those He saves. My prayer is that you would draw near to the Lord and that He in turn will draw near to you.
My Random Act of Kindness
I can't help but think how kindness seems to dwell in my heart so much. I work in heavily homeless populated area (Downtown Miami). Although I can't do this all the time, the times that I can, I will go and buy lunch for the homeless or if I have left over from my own lunch, I will give it to them. The smile on their face is priceless and all I do is smile back and say "God bless you". In the same way that I try to help the homeless in more than just this way, I try to help other people when they are in need. I feel that because I bare one of the fruits of the spirit, I am blessed in more ways than one with health, love, wonderful family and great friends.
For my project, I created a digital scrapbook page. I am beginning a faithbook and what a great way for me to add something to it that I can share in this blog hop! I used my Creative Memories software and I'm also going to be giving this to my Mom for mother's day in a nicely decorated shawdowbox (I'm truly trying to multitask!)
The same way that the Lord blesses those He loves we want to bless you. We have found an amazing line-up of sponsors and we want to share with you what you could win by hopping around with us:
