When I was writing our book, "Spiritual Advocates", I came to the chapter I was to write about the Judge. I thought "how can I describe God in a way that's different than the way most people do? Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent...sure. But then what?
Creator, Father, etc. is what I typically read and hear. How can I describe You differently, Lord?" I went to bed and awoke the next morning with the phrase "fruit of the Spirit" in my mind. At first, I was a bit perturbed. What has that to do with God? Those are qualities that are to be seen in us.
Then it began to be clear to me. They are, in a sense, "a photograph of God". So the chapter presents him as Phil Miglioratti did in his recent newsletter article. God is loving, he is joyful (He sings over us), he is peaceful (my peace I give...), etc. as you've pointed out.
So, Phil, I appreciated the confirmation and the remembrance of that day in my journey.
