I am a city girl with a black thumb. I do not grow things. Fruit is purchased at the supermarket and brought home. I do not like to get my hands dirty.
For 2013, my one-word focus was “fruitilicious.” My desire to is to live a fruitful life for God, but He is teaching me that this will require me to put in some spiritual elbow grease. I can’t buy this kind of fruit in the store. I must cultivate it.
So, for 31 days, I explored what it would require for me to live a more fruitful life. I hope you will join me. I will do my best to not let my black thumb get in the way of things.
