We are going fishing with a group from church to Fort Desoto Beach today. I love the ocean and the beach. I love the palm trees there and Palm trees do make me think of the beach.

This morning in chapel I continued with the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians chapter 5. My theme for the preschoolers today was self control. Do you remember all 9 fruits of the Spirit?
