https://inspirationsbykatheryn.com/1107-2/my-book-applied-christianity/Ah, my Lord God, when I give anything to you, it is not really a gift. I am only returning what is already yours. The world and all that is in it is yours because you created everything. Then you loaned it all to humans to take care of for you. You give each of us talents so we can make your loans beautiful. May we, give them back to you better than they were. How? By giving what you loaned to us to someone who cannot pay us back. Perhaps a retired person with low income, perhaps a child, perhaps a beggar on the street. May what we give away praise you in this way.
And all those talents you gave us. I cannot count them all. Oh, my! One person is an artist with pencils or paints or sand or glass or stone. Someone else is a musician making music that is loud and soft, fast and slow, high and low. Someone else is a cook, a writer, a welder, a speaker, a carpenter, a pilot, a climber. Then there are the builders of things short and tall, square and triangle, brick or wood or glass. The molders and sculptors of marble, silly putty, wood, and even food. Mountain makers of stone, sand, mashed potatoes, and bubbles. The sewers, the writers, the cookers. The explorers seeking more of your wonders and beauty and marvels. Oh, so many talents you have given us to make your world just a little more exciting, intense, entertaining, lovely, introspective, and joyous. I think you are grinning at me now. And was that a wink? Thank you, Lord.
