Your Gift

“Your talent is God's gift to you; what you do with it is your gift to God. “

I often hear people say, “I wish I could paint”. I am a strong believer that we all have talents and ways to express ourselves. Some talents are hidden, but look closely and you will find something that allows you to express yourself.

Art can be pleasing to all of the senses and it does not necessarily have to happen with a brush and some paint. Many of you are fantastic gardeners. To place the right colors together on the ground and create a pleasing flower bed is an artistic creation.  Some have a voice that can carry a beautiful tune and it is pleasing to our ears. You may think you can’t create, but all you cooks and bakers are creating something for our sense of taste. Sewing, knitting, decorating, crocheting, flower arranging and even coordinating the right outfit; are a few of the ways to create and express yourself.

Before I painted on canvas, I was creating with needles. I have shared a couple of pieces that I knitted and crocheted.  Although I am busy painting, I still take time to knit and crochet for my grandchildren. To express yourself  is to give of yourself.


  1. Oh, yes, crocheting is my gift from God that I try to pass on to others..Thank you for this!

  2. Terri,

    I believe we all have a gift. Once we find it, we should share it. Thanks for your comment:0)
