Words Are My Craft. And Music...

I opened the mail Wednesday to find THIS!
Cheered by its colors,
    blessed by the thoughtfulness,
          and in awe of the creativity and talent
          that went into its creation,
I began to wish I possessed the skills so many of my friends possess. In my moanful state, I couldn't think of ANYthing I did creatively.

Then it dawned on me!
Words are my craft. And music.
It is not for me to wish and compare
but to use and share
the gifts and talents I have been given.

THESE words, for instance--words composed recently
to acknowledge and assuage the discomfort
of  a blogging friend...

Healing IS process 
Two steps forward 
One back
Celebrate mornings 
Let evenings embrace you
(rlg 2/2016)

Stitched into the corner of Marlynne's gift was this reference:  Matthew 5:16--
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, 
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Stitching?  Painting? Gardening? Decorating? Words?  Music?
Let it shine.

Whatever be the gifts which each has received, you must use them for one another's benefit, 
as good stewards of God's many-sided kindness.  (I Peter 4:10, Weymouth New Testament)


  1. "Whatever, let it shine." Yes, oh yes. God blessed us all with our own unique talents.

  2. Each of us have the gifts He wanted for us to have and use! Your words are gifts to others!

  3. Ohhh, thank you for sharing that! I can do that! I can make something out of fabric to bless someone. :)

    1. Ohhhhhhhh! I hope you do SOON! I doubt that you can imagine how blessed they will be!

  4. We all make the world go round in our own way!
