If Life Was A Pumpkin Patch ~ Fruit Of The Spirit

If life was a pumpkin patch;
And fruit our good deeds.
I pray my fruit would shine forth;
God's love in every seed.
Love and grace, peace, endurance;
Let this fruit grow big and round:
So when you inspect my fruit;
Let your glory be what's found.
Temperance and self control;
Let this fruit grow big and strong.
Fertilize them with your care;
Keep them from the blight of wrong.
Your gentleness and kindness;
Let others see them in me;
So when my life is over;
Your fruit would sprout fourth seed.
In my pumpkin patch of life;
Let your goodness be a light.
Let my largest fruit be faith;
With a heart that is upright .
Though I know my patch is not perfect;
It's suffered blight that costs.
I won't leave empty handed;
I have reached some, who were lost.
A meek and humble spirit;
Make this fruit bloom and grow.
So others all around me;
Won't see me, but your love know.
Lord as I pick my pumpkins;
From my patch with pumpkins filled.
Let your joy be present Lord:
As I see the fruit it yields.
When bringing in the Harvest;
I'll set my pumpkins here and there.
That they would be a blessing;
To observers everywhere.
