I have always been blessed with the gift of self expression. Until recently I have only channeled those gifts through music. I have been an active member of worship teams for the last twenty years and find great joy "fiddling" around for the lord. Recently, while counseling a coworker, I wrote a short essay to demonstrate to her that it was not impossible to express ones self through the written word. She was at the time trying to work toward her GED after almost 25 years and had been assigned to write an essay. When she as well as my family and friends read what I had written, they all encouraged me to write more. I thank God daily for allowing me the ability to use the gifts he has given me. My prayer is that others will be ministered too through them as well.
