The Fruit of the Spirit!

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5: 22-23 

Note: In our house we use the fruits of the Spirit to describe how we want to behave at all times. If someone is doing something not so nice we ask if they have the fruit. Last night Nat had a ROUGH night and was driving us all over the edge. Audrey decided to sing this over and over and over and over again.... for like an hour! There was no stopping this girl.... and FINALLY her brother looked at her and said "If I stop being a butt head will you shut up?" Audrey simply shook her head yes while continuing to sing. Then Nathaniel said "FINE! I am done... please stop singing now." And  there were no more tantrums in our house for the rest of the night.

 Oh these kids CRACK me up.... when they aren't driving me over the edge :)
