The first hint of what would become my
life's avocation and gift to this world came
the night I wrote a note to my Mom and
Dad. I was a young teenager and it was the
first time I had ever written something that
wasn't a school assignment. That night I
just felt a stirring in my heart to let Mom
and Dad know how much I loved them, how
much they meant to me, and how grateful I
was to them for all they had given me.
Being too shy to say these things face to
face, though, I wrote them down in a note for my parents to find
after I went to bed.

Later that night I heard a gentle knocking at my door. Sleepily, I
walked over to it and opened it up. There were Mom and Dad
with a look of such love on their faces. With trembling arms they
hugged me awake and thanked me for my note. Seeing the
happiness I had given them made my own heart jump for joy. I
was amazed that my simple words could have touched them so. It
was the first time I could ever remember seeing my Dad cry.

That beautiful memory has stayed alive in my soul ever since. It
was with me when I wrote my first story and sent it to the local
county paper. It was with me when I began to share my stories
online with thousands of people all over this world. It was with
me when I published my first book. It is with me now as I write
these worlds. It reminds me that my writing is a gift from God and
sharing it with others is my gift to God.

Don't be shy about sharing your many gifts from God with this
world. It doesn't matter what they are. They can be talents, skills,
brains, or brawn. They can be smiles, hugs, laughter and joy. They
can be acts of kindness and a spirit of compassion. They can be
your work or your avocation. They can even be a simple note
written with love. All that matters is that you share them. All that
matters is that you use them to make this world a little more like
Heaven.
