Fruit of the Spirit in the Boys

We are studying Galatians, and we have finally come to the Fruit of the Spirit verse - I LOVE the reminder of our sinful nature, and the joys of living in God's Love.

One of my consistent prayers has been for the boys' relationship. Being complete opposites in personality makes for trying moments, and does not easily breed joy between young boys. However, we have been blessed to see the Spirit working in their lives.

After hours of playing outdoors in the beauty that is Spring, they relaxed, together, touching and silently enjoying the company of a brother... the Fruit of the Spirit ... Love, Joy, Peace, Kindness in brothers.

(Dirty feet on the couch did not breed much Joy in Mom, but it was overshadowed by the moment.)
