Talent is the ability to do easily that which others find difficult.
Lord, help me to recognize and value the abilities that I have been given and use them gratefully.
Simple trust in God is all that is required to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Lord, I love You. I trust in You. I am Your child.
Pay It Forward -- even though I'm struggling with these flu-like symptoms, I got up, went food shopping, cooked a pot roast then planted myself on the couch. When my daughter got home from college, she paid it forward by cleaning the place up.
My talents? I'm not sure... does being able to tie a cherry stem with my tongue count? Perhaps it's working well with weak, troubled students. Is that a talent? Hmmm, I'll have to think about that...
I truly believe I witnessed true 'talent' on television while watching the MTV music video awards last night.
A young country-pop singer, Taylor Swift, won an award for best female performance. While starting her acceptance speech, Kanye West , another artist, interrupted on stage adding his added his two cents that Beyonce should have won the award. (watch his ridiculous behavior in today's video).
But it wasn't until the end of the awards ceremony did I witness true talent, professionalism and kindness. When Beyonce won the last award of the evening -- the prestigious Video of the year award -- she paused then said, "I remember when I was 17 years old with Destiny's Child and nominated for an MTV music award. It was the most exciting moment of my life..."
Beyonce KnowlesThen she asked for the humiliated Taylor Swift to please come back onto the stage. Beyonce gave her moment in the spotlight to the young nineteen-year old rising starlet -- stepping back and allowing her to finish her acceptance speech.
Clearly God was doing his work through the superstar. Now, that's what I call real talent.
To my Readers: I went back to work last week (teaching high school). Between prepping for the 2 new classes and this horrible haunting cold, I've had difficulty bloggin this week. Thanks for all of your emails and messages. Hugs... xoxoxo
What are some of your talents?
