Our Gifts

A    L    O    H    A  !

" We all live
 under the same sky,
 but we don't all have
 the same horizon. "

 Konrad Adenauer

















“ Look within. 
Within is the fountain 
of good,
and it will ever
 bubble up, 
if thou wilt ever dig.”
Marcus Aurelius











" When I examine myself 
and my methods of thought, 
I come to the conclusion
 that the gift of fantasy 
has meant more to me 
 than any talent 
for abstract, 
positive thinking.  "

Albert Einstein






  <(-'.'-)>




All of us
have gifts
that the world 
has rejected;

Give your gifts
 ANYWAY.


Not whining
when not winning
we're still at
the beginning.

Thanks for your quotes, Cloudia!

Thanks for your very nice comment!

In the Bible Jesus tells about the lord who gave talents to his servants with the command to keep them until he came back. Those who had many talents took care that the amount of talents doubled by the time the lord came back. The servant with the one talent did nothing with it, which angered the lord.We have to work with what talents we have! Like you showed us!

Good morning Cloudia, you are so right about gifts, and it's so surprising how many we have locked away, collecting dust and getting worried that they will never see the light of day. Your reminder for this day is especially important for my own life today! Thanks for my first gift of the day, special lady-Karen
