“The entire fruit is already present in the seed.” – Tertullian
Early Fall brings the gift of Jeanne’s labor when she generously shares fresh tomatoes from her garden, sweeter than candy. Reminding me that our life’s purpose is to bear fruit by sharing our gifts, by adding bold flavor, by lighting up a room, by planting seeds of hope. To leave more behind than what we were given. To multiply our gifts by giving them away.
Our fruit – gentleness, compassion, patience, generosity, civility, peace. In a word, love. Bear fruit.
