This is the 2nd swap in this series.
There will be 9 months of the "Fruit of the Spirit" swap, we will focus on a different "fruit" each month. Along with this swap, there will be threads in the G.I.F.T. group forum that will go along with this swap. Be sure to check each month what fruit topic we will be working on. Please read through the whole swap description for how to engage in this swap.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." ~ Galatians 5:22-23
August 2022 ~ JOY (Watermelon)

"For the joy of the Lord is your strength." ~ Nehemiah 8:10
Can you have joy in the chaos? Or does your moodiness hover over everyone like a cloud? Not that anyone should be joyful about the hard times, but rather your joy comes from #1) God is with you through it and #2) God uses every trial to help you become stronger in the faith.
During the month of August, work on JOY by:
Once you have been assigned to your swap partner:
There may be months that you can't find anything to go with the fruit that's represented for that month, if this happens you can send any other kind of fruit that you think represents the spiritual fruit for that month. Be sure to let your swap partner know why you sent a different fruit item.
Please rate your swap partner promptly once you have received your notecard with surprise. Give a 5 rating if they met the swap requirements and give a heart if you feel it's deserved. Please don't base your rating on the $ value you receive.
