It's Melita's turn to host the Salt Challenge this week and here's what she had to say:
"Continuing along the same vein as Lythan and Kim, our focus this week is on the work on the Holy Spirit in us and how it is manifested in the community of believers, namely, through the fruits of the Holy Spirit in our lives which are so clearly laid out in Galatians 5:22-23. 'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.'"
You can read the rest of her post on the Salt blog. My response is a bit unexpected I think and I admit it is not what I had intended but . . . I made this card earlier in the week intending to use it for my KSS Christmas in June sale post. Another card was made and I used it instead but then I realized that the sentiment on this card was perfect "peace, joy & happiness." A sentiment great for Christmas time, yes! But peace and joy are also fruits of the Spirit - and ones that we can possess because of the birth of Christ!! He is our Peace, He is the source of all Joy!! We talk about it a lot in December, but this is something that should stay with us all through the year!
I used 3 Step Misltetoe & Holly from Kitchen Sink Stamps for my card. Today marks the start of KSS's Christmas in June sale. By using the coupon code HOLLY you will get 15% off everything in the store!
