The Fruits of the Spirit Emerge

So our good friend Suzanne Halstead had a vision, and we were part of it. The Halsteads have been our friends ever since I finally got myself to church camp when I was in my mid 30's (before I stepped into Wernersville, I walked at Mensch Mill).

Suzanne imagined the nine fruits of spirit adorning a wall that came with their house and is next to a labyrinth, which did not come with the house.

So Mosaic Woman and I imagined doing such a project and ideas floated about, then Suzanne and Gary came over for a business meeting which involved some homemade pizza (yes, we treat our clients well). Then we showed them glass that we felt would work well for mosaics, and they chose colors to match the fruit.

We are waiting for the panels, but I decided that it would be best to have the longest word set to go, so I pulled out the orange glass and by the time I go to bed tonight, it will be set to go, and with the scraps.... ahhh I have imagined two "faithfulness" projects of my own.

and the shortest fruit, a long time fave of ours... Joy!


  1. At first because the letters had so much dimension I thought that this was an embroidered. This is going to be really lovely!

  2. Boy, you've piqued my curiosity. I can't wait to see how this develops. So far, the aethetic value is powerful.

  3. Valerie and Snowcatcher---- all the letters are complete as we wait for the base to make the mosaic. please come along on the journey into the fruits
