Layers of Color "Fruit of the Spirit" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the
"Fruit of the Spirit" Designer Blog Hop!
If you got here from Linda's blog you are in the right place! If not, please start at Layers of Color blog.
The blog hop order is:
LOC blog, Diana, Grace, Jennie, Linda, ME, LOC blog

This week we have teamed up with the 2Sketches4You Challenge Blog
All week long, both teams will be participating in this "Fruit of the Spirit" theme.   And Layers of Color is sponsoring them this week.   Play along with this weeks sketch and you could win Fruitful Harvest art stamp set, Belle Brocade art stencil, and Botanical Swirls art stencil!!  So after you complete the "Fruit of the Spirit" blog hop head over and check out the challenge to quailify.


But wait, not so fast. 
Make sure you comment on each of the Design Team's blog today.  Laura, Layers of Color owner, has such a generous heart and is allowing each of her DT members to give away either a free art stamp set or art stencil.  Want to know which set I'm giving away??  Make sure you read to the bottom of the post!  All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog and I will draw a winner!

One of the things I LOVE about Layers of Color is their desire to share God with others.  So when ask to participate in this special hop, I was so excited.  This verse is near and dear to my heart.  When my children were small, I had a book series I used to read to them.   Each book explained each fruit of the Spirit.  I also stenciled each fruit of the Spirit along the ceiling down our hallway.  I wanted these words to be a daily reminder of what we should be living out.  Many of you may be familiar with this wonderful bible verse.  God did not leave us to wonder who we are or who we should be as His children.  This verse is just one of so many that leads us in the direction living a Godly life.  While none of us are, nor will be, perfect, this verse reminds us that if we walk in the Holy Spirit, we can exercise these characteristics.  We can experience the joy of living the life our God intends for us.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness and faithfulness."  Galatians 5:22-23

If any of you have questions about becoming a Christian, then please contact one of us.  Each and every member of this team would be thrilled to share with you God's great plan for salvation.

Your next stop is the Layers of Color blog.  If there is a broken link, just head back to the LOC blog for a full list.
