The Burden of Ego Lifted

Humbled and inspired –
the burden of ego lifted
from me in a moment
and understanding came –
Hush. It’s your turn to listen,
to let yourself be supported,
to let someone else share
her talents and gifts with you.
And Love gifted me
with the expression of beauty
offered by another
of Her children. Blessings
abound and surround,
here, now, all around.
– Karen Molenaar Terrell

Gifts from the Wind

What gifts will today bring?
Yesterday I found laughter
with my students, and love
in a message, the music
of rain pattering on the window,
a cat waiting to be scratched
behind the ears and a dog
waiting for a walk. And on that
walk I found jewelry of  ruby
amber, gold and copper, blown
by the wind to the side
of the road.

“…today is big with blessings.” 
– Mary Baker Eddy

A Stone Soup of Talents

This part of being a writer used to be really awkward for me – the self-promotion part – but I’ve reached a place where… it’s okay, you know? I think there’s actually more ego in refusing to share your gifts than there is in sharing them. I’d like to encourage all my friends to stop hoarding their gifts – stop refusing to share your talents – and share, share, share… wouldn’t the world be a beautiful place if we all made a “stone soup” out of whatever talents we have to add to the pot? 

And on that note 🙂 , here’s my Amazon author page.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5
