what happens when we live God’s way? God brings gifts into our lives, much the way fruit appears in an orchard. things like
affection for others
exuberance about life
a willingness to stick with things
a sense of compassion in the heart and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates everything.
we find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to direct our energies wisely.
