SHARING YOUR GIFTS

I have a pretty good idea of the person I am. I know many things about myself…some I’m proud of, some…not so much. One of the things I struggled with at one time was affirming other people. I don’t know why…if it was envy or just not thinking. Whatever, God impressed upon me that that was something I should be doing. I needed to look for the gifts that He had given to others and learn to appreciate the good things they did with their gifts. And, so I have made that a concious effort. And, as I have practiced this, I find that God has blessed me with seeing things through another set of eyes. And, many times, I see way more than I would on my own.

Today, a friend of mine, who is a very talented photographer, took some of my words to heart and has written a delightful post. I urge you to go over and read it. I promise you that you will be blessed…and what a feast for the eyes. Just click here and you’ll be whisked over there. It’s one of those computer things that seems almost magical…and never to be understood by some amoung us!

  3. Trying again—my Blogger thing has the yee-haws lately.

    This is just the most wonderful collaboration i can think of—the inspiration of your words, translated into Janie's stunning photos—I'm so proud of both of you, and doubly proud and honored to call you both my friends.

  4. What a sweet post. She is very talented.

  5. Tonja, thank you so much for your kind and gracious words. You have been such an inspiration to me, too, my friend.

    I can't count the times I've sat transfixed (sometimes with tears in my eyes) reading words spoken straight from your heart, as you shared your innermost feelings and steadfast faith and love for our Lord … no matter how sad or frightened or weary you were at the time. Your sweet spirit always shines through … and I feel so blessed to be touched by it.

  6. Thank you Tonja! have a blessed weekend!
