We’re up to day nine and already into the new year…but not, I repeat, not, out of the Christmas season.
The nine ladies represent the fruit of the Spirit…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
We read about the fruit in Galatians.
But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself. There is no law against things of that kind.

I’ll be posting a different version of the song each day for the next twelve days. No need to thank me.
