Talents, Attitudes, Skills, Knowledge, or Style -- identify your strengths, which are uniquely yours.  Focus your best energy on using them.  TASKS are discussed in a book of mine entitled The Speed of Trust written by Stephen M. R. Covey with Rebecca R. Merrill

Feed opportunities and starve problems.  Peter Drucker

There are no uninteresting things; there are only uninterested people.  Lord Chesterton

Do you wonder why I am sharing these specific quotes with you today?  I share these quotes with you today because I love you and I want to issue a challenge to you.  Think about it.  We are all a work in progress.  I want you to continue to stretch yourself and grow, just as I am stretching and growing.  You have so much to offer.  Keeping your talents, attitudes, skills, knowledge or style bottled up inside of you without sharing these capabilities God gave you is wasting them.  More important than focusing on a weakness is focusing and using your capabilities to enrich your life and the lives of others you touch on a daily basis.

Almost all conflict is a result of violated expectations.  Blaine Lee, author of The Power Principle

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all graces abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.  As it is written: "He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever." 2 Corinthians 9:6-9

In closing, I want to request prayer for my mother in law, Julia Forehand.  She was working on a project in our local quilt shop yesterday, got her foot caught in the cord of an iron and fell.  Long story short, she is in the hospital with a fractured pelvis. She is in good spirits and is doing well on the pain medication.  Pray for strength as she begins physical therapy.  Thank you so much.  Love, Nan
