Trees are Growing Again

A couple of weeks ago we had an issue with an inappropriate response from one child to another.  A moment to make a mother proud.  Or not.  I decided right then and there we needed to start studying the Fruits of the Spirit.

I began looking for activities and opened our Bible to Galatians 5:22-23:  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.

First we made fruit baskets with each of the labeled fruits.  Today we went a step further and put fruit right on the trees.

We drew trees with markers on some watercolor paper I had, then added each of the fruits of the Spirit and finally glued on buttons.

We also listened to songs about the fruit while we worked.  And I am praying for fruit…
