What's Your Fruit?

 "No good tree bears bad fruit,
 nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.  
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. 
People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or
 grapes from briers.  
A good man brings good things out of
 the good stored up in his heart, 
and an evil man brings evil things out of 
the evil stored up in his heart. 
For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

 We are known by our fruit.  Hummm...what is my fruit?  If I could choose I think I'd like to be strawberries.  But really do I bear love, kindness, patience, self-control and mercy as I go through out my day?  Are my words up-lifting and life affirming?  Of course I'd like to think so, but probably not everything I do or say is a good example to my daughter.  I am striving, with God's help to make my life simply better fruit.
