Coconut coir growing medium comes from the coconut's fibrous husk (known as coir) that is bound together by lignin (known as pith).  With the addition of water, coir expands to an easy to work with growing medium. The addition of water increases the volume 3 to 9 times, depending on the packaging of products. This process results in a 100% organic, biodegradable growing medium, making it a natural and safe growth medium of choice for growers

Fruit Feature - GRAPES (Great Recipes)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for photo FruitGrape_zpsfcyiktjv.jpg

Fruit Feature #6:  GRAPES (Great Recipes)

I'm doing a new series on Sundays about "The Fruit of the Spirit" - you see, when one becomes a Christian they are filled with the Holy Spirit.  As a result, there are certain characteristics that overflow from a Christian's life (like love, joy, kindness etc).

I decided that during the week after each "Fruit of the Spirit" post I will feature the actual fruit that I symbolically used for that characteristic.  Most recently we studied "GOODNESS" (click HERE to read the entire post "Fruit of the Spirit #6 - GOODNESS").  Today, I am featuring GRAPES - which was the fruit that I used as a symbol of GOODNESS.

The following are a few of my favorite GRAPE recipes that I previously shared with you on this blog.

Fruit of the Spirit #6 - GOODNESS

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for photo SundayFruitG_zps9opjrolj.jpg
Fruit of the Spirit #6 = GOODNESS
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 photo SundayFruitVerse_zpsb99tym7d.jpg

Today we will concentrate on GOODNESS.

What is goodness?

- It is doing what is right - Justice with love. 
The opposite of good is evil. 

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for photo SundayFruitG1_zpsbuogaajc.jpg

"Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with Justice."  Psalm 112:5

What is our goodness based on?

 - It's the commandments.  We know what is right and wrong by God's example.  There is only One who is truly "good" and that is God but we need to strive to live up to His example everyday.

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for photo SundayFruitG2_zpsn4hidigc.jpg "

When should we be "good"? 

- Everyday of the week - even the Sabbath.  There is no rest from doing good - no rest from "goodness."

"Then Jesus asked them, 'Which is lawful on the Sabbath:  to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?'  But they remained silent."  Mark 3:4

To whom should we be "good"?

- We should be good to everyone - even our enemies.  That is the most difficult thing - to be good to those who hate us.  However, that act will totally glorify God.

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for photo SundayFruitG3_zpstcaw6bad.jpg

This is God's will for our lives - to "do good works."  Let's strive to be decent, moral, noble, show our "goodness."

What will you do with your spiritual basket of GOODNESS this week?
