DC, Third Point Malibu Daisies

The older i get, the faster I realize life is short.  Like the flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, so are we, but unlike the flowers, we are created in God’s image and are meant for relationship with Him.  How then shall we live?   I used to spend a lot of time feeling like I had to do something BIG with my life in order to make an impact on the world.  But I’ve learned it’s actually the little things that we do every day that have the biggest impact on the lives of others and ultimately on the world around us.    The things we say, the way we say them.  Living in ministry, while working in advertising has taught me that we are meant to bloom where we’re planted.  God has a plan and a purpose for each of us.  We are all gifted differently and have different passions and interests for a reason- so that we can live out those gifts and passions and interests and bring hope and life and joy to others and ultimately bring glory to God.   Some of us are artists, others are writers, others are athletes , others engineers.  Some are designers, others models, some are chefs, others entrepreneurs.  Some of us are inventors, other connectors or encouragers or healers.  We all have a place.  I’m a practical girl and what I love about the internet is that it provides this massive porthole for tapping into the creativity of one another.  Someone on the other side of the world can be touched or helped or impacted by that small passionate share.  Let’s be who we are right where we are, no matter how we are.

“Whether you eat, or drink or whatsoever you do, do it all for the glory of God” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
