Poem of the Week

Daughters of the Spirit

The Spirit has nine daughters
All equal in beauty, purity, and grace
Each with benefits to offer you
If you seek their Father's face

Love is the first daughter
Who wears a crimson gown
She is the gentle rapture
That between us should be found

Next in line is daughter, Joy
Her gown is gold as sun
With her in our hearts, brethren
We can tell others, happily, of the Son

Daughter number three is Peace
Her purple gown shines true
She is behind that content sigh
When a Christian's life is through

After Peace is the one,
PatienceHer gown is the lightest green
She steps in when hardships come
And prayerful waiting is what you need

Gentleness is daughter four
With gown of plushy pink
She is behind a mother's touch
And, prayerfully, behind the words we think!

Goodness is the next one
Her blue gown shimmers clean
With her presence in our hearts
Through God's grace, Christ likeness will be seen

Next comes precious Faith herself
Her gown has a silver tint
She's given when the Lord is good
And He helps a man repent

Meekness comes after Faith
Her gown as white as snow
With humility she thinks not of self
She is content to be the lowest of the low

The last daughter, Temperance
Her gown a sunset hue
With her, your self can be controlled
In everything you do

With these daughters of the Spirit
Let the Spirit dwell in you
Remember all their benefits
And their Father's blessings too

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal 5:22-23

Dear Allix,
I praise God for giving you such a love for Him and His word. May you continue to encourage other young ladies to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness through your love for poetry and photography. I am so happy you and Rachel are able to express yourselves in such a profitable way. May the Lord be dearer to you today.
Love in Christ, mrs. greene
