Sibling Assignment # 42: Story of the Spirit

This week Silver Valley Girl asked us to tell a story about ghosts or spirits. Soon you will find my siblings' posts here and here.





I have this wood sign hanging right by the wood stove where it is visible every day. I love this collection of words because it reminds me of walking in the Spirit. When I thought of spirits during this Halloween week I thought of the Holy Spirit. The complete verse that uses these words reads like this: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. "- Galatians 5:22.

As I sat in my small church last Sunday the fruit of the Spirit was apparent in the room. We prayed for people that had exhibited love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We also prayed for those people still searching for peace in their lives. It was a moving experience.

This verse ends with the following words: "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." As people left church that day they were walking with the spirit. It was a blessed day.
