Soooo my internet connection is more off than on. However, I won’t be deterred. I’m posting from my blackberry.
This season is not only exciting but challenging. I believe the Bible when it says “to whom much is given, much is required”. When I was younger, I thought it should have been the logline for a movie whereby the rich give to the poor. As I matured I realized it has nothing at all to do with material things.
Each of us, including YOU, were born with gifts. Some can sing. Some can write. Some are number crunchers. Some are more techno savvy. Whatever your gift, you are REQUIRED to share it in the present.
In response to a question I recently posed to him, DJ Fatman Scoop reflected on the importance of presence versus presents. And I can’t help but think that in our presence our gifts should be a present to bless someone.
That being said, I know firsthand the delicate balance of mentoring and being used for your services. I’m grateful that none of this group fall in the latter category. I know I can’t personally help everyone but I will commit to doing as “much” as I can.
Today’s goals are to pay the bills, get groceries and do some writing.
Hope you all continue to pursue your passions no matter what comes your way today.
