How do we know when we have fully discovered our gift? How will I know that this is really my gift? Very few do because each day presents us with a new gift waiting to be discovered each day. Our gift in life is to believe in ourselves, to believe in our potential goodness and love, to use all our stumbling blocks we encounter as stepping stones and to believe that God walks with us on this journey. We can’t ever hoard or lock away God’s blessings in our lives. Our greatest discovery is to know that this supply is endless. Our gift is to appreciate these blessings, live them, love them and share them.
