Years ago I got a fortune cookie that read:
“Talents that aren’t shared aren’t talents.”
I believed in that fortune because I believed that we are all here to help each other with our individual gifts and talents.
We read instruction manuals and spend time with our computers, phones, apps, etc. so we can use them in our daily life. Yet when this life struggle gets real…
Today I built a lightbox to photograph the bowties for my
upcoming online store. It’s amazing what you can do with a cardboard box, a few sheets of white gift tissue, a box cutter and tape.
As I placed the desk lamp next to it, I realized that in order for the light to shine properly on the object inside the box, there has to be a level of transparency (i.e., through the tissue paper).
That undeniable truth personifies the mission of this blog and my life.
I must maintain a level of transparency in order for God to shine through my world and make it what He wants it to be.
After years of music production, corporate presentations, radio marketing and social media pioneering — I’ve finally stopped running and accepted my call to share God’s message of improving our quality of life through Him.
I walked towards the lectern as my pastor commented on my suit and bow tie. The congregation carried a curious vibe throughout the sanctuary.
