Being alive, another gift from God.  That’s my answer… Problem?

Most of us love gifts, physical and or mental gifts.  Especially the ones we are surprised by, and most times that is because they’re free, or so we think.  Ever since Cancer knocked some sense into me, I’ve come to terms with there are all types of gifts; some realized, some not, and some lost forever.

There are gifts we work hard for; do this and you will receive that.  Then there are gifts we acquire without effort or without them being earned; something just wanted us to have whatever… Including the gifts that require a special ability, something natural; our God-Given Talents, which should be our favorite.

Oh!  I haven’t forgotten the Devil gives gifts, too; We stole something and didn’t get caught.  DUD!

The thing that makes our gifts worthwhile is when someone else gets to enjoy them while giving us all the praise we can handle.  All artists know they must give everything to get high praises, and anything less than their best is a waste of their gift.

An artist also knows; “The artist is nothing without the gift, and the gift is nothing without work.”   Emile Zola

Just remember while everyone else is praising you, you give All the Glory to God.

God gave us the gift of life: it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.”   Voltaire

Thank you, Lord, for our gifts, and teach us how to use them to glorify you so we can enjoy all that is given to us while we are here on Earth.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen!,,, or Facebook norvie,

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog readers have complained about my website not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?
