In this festive season as you wrap and unwrap those colorful expressions of affection, here’s a thought. Why not unwrap a broken relationship and re-wrap it in healing words of LOVE? Someone you know is struggling with loss or fear. Here’s a roll of JOY to place around their drooping shoulders. One of your friends is overcome with stress, longing to be enfolded in a shawl of PEACE.
This trio of LOVE, JOY and PEACE is packaged with PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL. You may recognize these as “the fruit of the Holy Spirit.” Harry & David ship their nutritious delights monthly, but these flavors of the very nature of God are instantly accessible for you to give to family, friends, co-workers and strangers whom you encounter daily.
Could you picture yourself operating a fruit stand, freely handing out an endless array of fresh reminders of the gift of God’s love and forgiveness?
“Every good gift and every perfect present comes from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change...” James 1:17
