This morning when I dropped Brett of at work, Kembry informed him that she would miss him.
She does this every morning.
Brett turned and said, "I think that's a fruit of our labors, hearing her say that."
Then we talked a little bit about what some other fruits are with which we've been blessed.
Being able to share our testimony, or have an unplanned missionary experience go well because the Spirit was with us. This is an obvious fruit of living righteously, and always being prepared with the Spirit.
Seeing a love of the scriptures grow in our children. Especially Cohen, but even Kembry is becoming interested in the stories. Maybe it's the way Cohen reads them, he really gets into them.
Seeing our friendships flourish, and feeling a deep love for those friends.
Feeling a peace during stormy hours and having faith in that peace.
Laughing as a family. Especially this one.
When we read our scriptures as a family, say our prayers as a family, play together, laugh together, go to church together, share our testimonies with each other...all of these things help nourish our trees and bring forth these good fruits.
I am so grateful for my fruits.
1 Nephi 8:12
"And as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy..."
What are some of your fruits?
