My One Word: Gift
I am still new in my faith and overwhelmed by the thought that God loves me so much He gave His only Son as a sacrifice for my sins. God’s love, grace, forgiveness, and patience are gifts beyond description. I want to learn how to fully accept those gifts and, in turn share those gifts with others around me. I want to be a gift to those God puts in my path. My actions, my words, my thoughts, my listening, my skills and talents, my love are gifts that I can give to others. So, no matter how small or great they might be, I am striving to give it all to others. Until I have given all, it is not enough. The widow’s mite reminds me of how much is enough. The cross is a reminder of how much was gifted to me.
