WRITING FOR 30 MINUTES

There comes a time when you just have to do what you've been putting off.  The time has come.  Doing this blog right now is not the actual thing I've put off, but it is the beginning of purposefully engaging and actively responding to life. 

I've set an alarm for 30 minutes from right now.  At the end of 30 minutes I will stop writing this entry and publish it with all it's errors.  I will do this because it is time to keep a promise and to serve.  (If that last sentence doesn't make sense then go back and read what I wrote yesterday.)

In a couple of months I will begin leading a Young Girls' Bible Study.  We will study Galatians 5:23-24
 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patientce, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

I've already found two songs and sign language on the internet that we may use.  You can find them here:

AND MY FAVORITE

I just spent the past 3 minutes singing the last song mentioned.  That one is so much fun.

During the fall of 2005 I had the opportunity to study under Betsy Bird of Just For Women Ministries.  The study was titled, THE PROOF IS IN THE FRUIT.  The first night she illustrated the fruit of the Spirit in this way:

              Just spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out how to draw a picture on here with no success.
 So I will use words.           

When light passes through a prism and we will see colors.
    We will see RED
                            ORANGE
                                       YELLOW
                                                 GREEN
                                                           BLUE
                                                                 INDIGO
                                                                            VIOLET!

When the Holy Spirit indwells you - the Holy Spirit is the light - you are the prism.
     Others will see LOVE
                                   JOY
                                       PEACE
                                              PATIENCE
                                                       KINDNESS
                                                               GOODNESS
                                                                        FAITHFULNESS
                                                                                     GENTLENESS
                                                                                                SELF-CONTROL!

Thirty minutes up.  

                        I kept a promise!
          
                                                  I served!
