It’s been good to have all of my girls together this week for the first time in ages. Dog-sitting too; it was a busy house! Good to see them interacting and having fun.
Each one is very different in their own way, bringing varied gifts and talents to the party. That’s like a workplace or a church-we are not cookie cutter duplicates but individuals. Each needs to be treated accordingly to flourish and to contribute to the whole.
One thing each of my girls have is creative skills. All are artists 🎨 in different ways. Nat did the Winnie the Pooh below while Emily is still working on the butterfly 🦋. Many hours of detailed work. She does commissions and prints if anyone is interested. Jen relishes colour.
May you have the courage to try out your own skills and appreciate those of others, at home and work.
Persecuted Christians, like us all, have their own skills and talents. They are part of our worldwide family. Let’s appreciate them for all they teach us; for what faith looks like in different contexts. It takes real courage for many women in particular who are looked down on and at risk.
