"I am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5) It is our desire to always abide in JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and Savior, and to bear much fruit...hence "Fruitbearers."
"The fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, and SELF-CONTROL. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23

Thankful Heart: Day 7
Oh God, how great is Thy handiwork
Of nature's mighty works on display,
For miles of breathtaking beauty,
No pen of man could portray.
Such splendor is given to Thy landscapes,
To places both high and low,
So that great or small might behold it,
We know that our Lord planned it so.
I thank God for eyes to behold such splendor
And for a heart attuned to His own,
So I can appreciate the wonders of autumn
Long after it has come and gone.
I thank You, God, for each season
Whichever it may be,
For I know there is beauty to be found
If only our eyes will see.
Let me not take for granted this great universe
You've given for us to enjoy and share,
We know from Your Word, eye has not seen or ear heard
The joys You've prepared for us there.
