Love this picture and I fully agree. It's the same thing with the talents God has gifted us with.  Nobody is without talent.. God made sure that each one would be equipped and able for his or her long life journey on earth.  We have it but isn't it strange that some of us can't quite make up our minds what to do with it or how. We seem to be confused. 

You see, this we call life -- it's not so much about us really although it seems to be ..... rather it's all about the love of our Father. And this love HE wants us to image or reflect to one another, with one another.

How we do this is all up to us. He has provided, now we must do our part. Talents, resources .....  it's all there for our taking, for our use.  So then we are also given the chance to take care of our talents, of our selves (nurturing, education, trainings, opportunities, experiences, etc.)  because doing so molds or hones us to become the best person we can ever be. Thus more ready to love well and better or best.

I understand that there is far more that we should be doing that does not have to refer to us (our beauty, intelligence, brilliance and the like) -- but one which will serve as our gate pass to the eternal kingdom.  That's what we all should know in our hearts .. no matter what our minds tell us otherwise.

We have our mission order from the Most High ---- to reflect the love of our Father for all of his creation.... man, animal, living and non-living, good and bad, beautiful, ugly, rich or poor, etc.

But we must and truly must learn how to use our talents and resources for good drawing grace and guidance from the words of our Father.....

John 15:12
New International Version (NIV)

12 My command is this:  Love each other as I have loved you.
May God's blessings beyond measure pour out on everyone. Lovely day!


  1. Ellen,

    The world will be like heaven if we follow this. If our heart is clear with no malice against anyone and we do not harm anyone, I think we can have peace always.

    Take care

    1. I can understand what you mean, Jack. It can begin with just one person to start with. One person who tries to be good, think good, do good -- is all that it would take. One person, one candle of hope lit, one act of kindness, one thought of greatness -- Then trust God to bless that brave effort and have it multiply like ripples surging on the water surface of an otherwise unbothered pool. Let's just do what we have to do.. and let God do the rest --- and he will!!

      Blessings to you and your loved ones.

  2. Hello Ellen,

    You made me feel guilty by this post. Yes, you are absolutely right about using our God given talents. But most of us fritter away our talents in idleness,procrastination and running after temporary pleasures of this life.

    Best wishes,

    1. Similarly we all find ourselves 'guilty' at some point or other in our lives over letting our talents 'fritter away' as you say. But strangely, by Divine Plan, He gently brings us back on track again. Thus we get another chance to do what we should be doing in the first place.

      Nice to be seeing you, Joseph. Have been to your blog and loved the pictures you've posted of gorgeous flowers. Lovely!
