On the 9th Day of Christmas

my true love gave to me
nine ladies dancing...
eight maids a milking
seven swans a swimming
six geese a laying
four colly birds
three French hens
two turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear tree!

Today's download includes nine ballerinas for you to play with. Nine represents the fruits of the spirit, found in Galatians 5:22, which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. The fruits are a result of our passion for God and following Jesus. And unlike the spiritual gifts, we're expected to have ALL the fruits of the spirit, not just some of them. Just like an apple tree is expected to bear apples, our lives are expected to be defined by these characteristics. If you find yourself missing one or more of the fruits, ask God to show you how to "cultivate" it in your life. He is the ultimate gardner! :) You can download the ballerinas on 4shared or Box.
