This giveaway is closed, but you can still share your gifts with us if you like. See who won here.
I've been wanting to write a post on gifts. Not gifts we buy, but gifts we have. God made us unique and equipped us with special talents. Are you in tune with yours? For myself, I can think of things I'm good at, or do relatively well, but when it comes to answering the question, "What are your gifts?", I tend to shrink away.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 1 Corinthians 12: 4,5
In part, I think we worry about not appearing humble enough when we're asked to talk about our strengths and talents. It's true we are to strive to be humble, but if we brush those gifts too far under the rug in our own minds are they accessible for use? (Sometimes I worry that I don't make sense and all you kind people are just humoring me by coming by everyday to see what this odd woman is *trying* to say this time.)
What I want to say is that I would like us all to take a minute and really think about what our God-given talents are and how we might be able to access and use them this coming week. Let's turn our gifts into giving.
Now, for the third "G"...

I'll go first (deep breath). In my humblest writing voice (See? This can be hard!), I would say that my gifts include teaching, giving, organization and being compassionate. Phew.
