On May 17, my wife and I welcomed our first granddaughter. Baby R weighed in at barely five pounds and had several health challenges since she was born at just 37 weeks. Despite these early issues, we are grateful she is growing stronger and begin-ning to thrive. As it was with the birth of our first grandchild, Baby J, it was love at first sight; well, that is not entirely true; we were in love with our tiny granddaughter even before she arrived but quickly fell even more in love with her when we held her for the first time and could whisper our welcome to her personally. more

Among the fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23 is gentleness. As the Holy Spirit lives in us, these fruit are evident in our daily lives. Check the dictionary and you see that gentleness is defined as being kind, tender, or mild-mannered (as opposed to angry or vengeful). In the Bible gentleness may also be translated meekness (which is not weakness). Gentleness in our actions, attitudes, and words requires controlled strength. Let us follow Paul’s words in Philippians 4:4-5, “Rejoice in the Lord always…Let your gentleness be known to everyone.” The world will be a better place if Christ’s gentle Spirit is evident in each of us. May God bless your week! Diane Cooke, Pastor, Presbyterian Churches, Willow Springs and Mtn. View. more
