One of my favorite tropical fruits is the mango. With a little freshly squeezed lime juice added. Yum!
Mangoes are a stone fruit and are known for not being the easiest fruit to peel. There is an art to it. It is learned. Kind of like the Tango.
The mango seed resembles something more like a bone than a pit or seed. It is fairly large in proportion to the fruit itself. Although, you can plant them and grow your own tree. I find it easiest to cube it when I am cutting it. Or better yet, purchase it already prepared in a Jamba Juice Mango-A-Go-Go Smoothie.:)
Even though mangoes are my favorite fruit, I still enjoy eating a variety of fresh fruits. Especially when they are in season. You can’t beat Porter peaches and Stillwell strawberries. And picking your own bluberries at Thunderbird Berry Farm. I love frozen grapes! Bananas are a constant staple in my kitchen.
But the very best fruit of all doesn’t come from the market. It’s straight from the Lord. The Fruit of the Spirit. It’s a great barometer of whether or not we are bearing spiritual fruit or better stated becoming more like Jesus.
How’s your fruit? Plentiful or sparce?
If you’re not feeling your daily minimum requirements, I’d suggest a little time in the Word and prayer. Best fertilizer there is!
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Love and laughter,
