Monday's Marvelous Quotes, etc...

"Reality Check; Who am I and where am I going? Let the MASTER be your teacher."

This is a quote I wrote for our grandson on his 21st birthday. We decided that we would do everything 21 so I gave him 21 quotes along with 21 Gold dollars, 21 drawing things (he loves to draw and is amazing at it) and a passel of other stuff; everyone at the party gave him things in 21's. Fun party!

In the writing world that I belong to, I think asking myself "who am I and where am I going" is a good question, one that I should ask myself more often. Actually it also applies to my painting and other walks of life too. Sometimes I forget to stop and think what I want in life and what I want to be known for. Do I really want to be known as a procrastinator? I DON'T THINK SO!

So with renewed enthusiasm (partly gleaned from the ANWA retreat I've mentioned before) I will go forth and try to listen harder to the Master and what HE wants me to become when I grow up; what HE wants me to do with my talents (I don't think He wants them hidden under a bushel). CLEAN MY DANG DESK OFF AND GET TO WORK!

What do you think the Master wants you to do with your talents? I would love to hear your comments on the subject.

  1. Joyce,
    I've been pondering that for several months now, and look where it got me. haha. For me it came down to the talk about good, better, and best. The things I was doing were good, but they weren't the best use of my time.
