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,

    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Awesome website you have here but I was curious if you knew
    of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here?

    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable
    individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone that
    really understands what they’re talking about on the internet.

    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people should read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
