Some stains shouldn’t be washed off

There’s no second chance at first impressions, they say. So what to write in a first blog?

I’m currently sitting here with a bowl of berries, so maybe I’ll mention my childhood because it was often spent climbing my parent’s mulberry tree. It was huge. My friends and I would lay on its branches and gorge ourselves. When we’d go home we could never hide what we’d been doing because our clothes, our mouths, our whole faces would be purple with fruit stains.

I read the other day, “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” I have to wonder, how stained am I by that fruit? When those words are descriptive of people’s lives, they can’t hide it. My resolution for this first blog is to be more stained by that type of fruit.

  1. welcome graham! so with this first post of yours being so spiritual and, to be honest, down-right-preachy (and as a preacher i mean that in a good way) i nominate you to be he chaplain for our little bard group. i suspect that will keep you busy because we’re all a little deranged, hence we’re all writers.
