I knew when I saw these raspberries in the Kitchen Garden at the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC I would be using this scripture. We had such wonderful weather while we were there. Gorgeous blue skies and the vegetation was so lush and green (no drought there - here in Buffalo our grass is so hard and sharp and brown it will cut your feet!)
I have always loved these verses. When my sons were little, Steve Green had a Hide 'em in Your Heart record album - of scripture songs. Whenever the boys were getting a little testy - I would sing the song based on these words.
I sure have hidden this scripture in my heart and I pray daily that my life would demonstrate the Spirit living in me - by these attributes.
