Fruit of the SPIRIT #1 = LOVE

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayFruitL_zpsjqj00xqi.jpg
Fruit of the Spirit #1 = LOVE
When we become a Christian, we are filled with the Holy Spirit and these "fruits" (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) are the characteristics that overflow from us.  This does not mean that we automatically produce Spiritual fruit without effort - we are still sinners and fall short of the Glory of God.  However, this fruitful Spirit will become easier and be like a good habit after years of practice.
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayFruitVerse_zpsb99tym7d.jpg


Today we will concentrate on LOVE.  A couple of years ago I did an entire series on this blog about LOVE - we studied
1 Corinthians chapter 13 VERSE by VERSE (click HERE to view a compilation of that entire series - once you see this post please click on every verse title to see each post)
True love is void of fear - Where there is love no fear can exist.  When fear is present then trust will never be possible.  See the portion of the verse below where it says "perfect love drives out all fear" - only then is total trust achievable.

 photo SundayFruitL2_zpsb0h2ehp9.jpg

When I focus on the word "fear" the first thing that popped into my mind is that we must "fear" our heavenly Father - it says so all throughout the old testament.  There are many different kinds of love (eg in the Greek language - Agape, Eros etc) and similarly there are different kinds of fear.  I believe that as children of God, we are to respect, honor, revere and admire Him - instead of the modern day meaning of "fear" (terror, panic, dread and horror).
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayFruitL3_zpsxwigerqn.jpg
When I read "there is no fear in love" - I recalled when my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma...... I was afraid.....terrified even.  My love for him wanted to protect him but of course in my own power I was helpless.  We had to trust in God and hope for the future and in so doing we were able to persevere
It's all about love - love never fails.



Let us try to use this Spiritual fruit box of - LOVE in our daily lives.

Parsnips & Asparagus - My Favorite Spring Veggies (RECIPES)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo BlogStuff_zpsiv1cmzsx.jpg
PARSNIPS & ASPARAGUS - My Favorite Spring Veggies


Today I am featuring two of my favorite Spring vegetables: Asparagus & Parsnips.  I will be sharing some of my recipes & some growing/harvesting tips.

ASPARAGUS
Health benefits - Asparagus is full of vitamins A, C, E, & K, it is also a good source of fiber, it contains chromium (which is a mineral that is good for insulin & therefore helps against Diabetes).  (I am not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).
Growing Tips & More - Asparagus is fairly easy to grow, although you do need a little patience at first because it will take at least 2 years before you can begin harvesting.  Click the following titles to view the entire post on these tips:

Recipes - Again, please click on each title to view the entire post:

PARSNIPS
Health benefits - Parsnips are high in fiber, vitamin C, folate & potassium.  The great thing about parsnips is that even though they taste very sweet, they actually contain no sugar which means that they will not change your blood sugar levels that much.  (again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).
Growing Tips & More - Growing parsnips is so much fun!  Especially when it comes time to harvest - Just like with any root crop, harvesting is like digging for buried treasure.  We winter over our parsnips by mulching them & then they are the first garden fresh vegetable in the Spring season (they become much sweeter when they are allowed to stay in the soil until Spring).
