I was once told that if you know a woman who lives the fruit of the Spirit, get a bushel basket. You have that and much more in Lisa Lewis. Pick away.

I love this. Do you have a Lisa Lewis in your life? Get a basket.
Lisa’d be the first to say: “Oh, no. Not me.” But that’s one of the fruits: humility. We’re all in process. The point is to stay in that process. It’s hard without a basket and a friend.
One of the best ways for me to grow in Jesus is spending time with women also in process. God’s gracious that way. We can’t do this road on our own. He loves us to pull alongside a fellow God-lover, and get out our baskets. Here’re some of my basket-girls (often basket-cases–more fun that way.)
I’m not off the hook, BTW. He expects me to grow fruit good enough to pick. Check it out:
When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. . . this is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.
–John 15:5-8 The Message
Tip: baskets are often 50% off at Michaels. Shopping with purpose. Love that.
Sale or not, pray today:
Lord, please bring me someone who shows me Who you are, loves me how I am, and prays me closer to You. I love baskets and fresh fruit. Help me get a fresh touch of You today. And may my life be worth the pickin’. Amen.
Lisa, and husband, Colin, living now in the Bay Area, enjoy the Giants and encourage everyone they meet to go long with God. I have to go further to fill my basket, but it’s worth the trip.
O, taste and see that the Lord is good through godly men and women who delight His heart and display His fruit; blessed are you when you take time with them, learn from them, and pick a fresh fruit or two. Today’s Psalm 34:8
