Sunday Sunshine: Sharing our Talents

Technically is it 12:05am on Monday, but I'm calling this a Sunday Sunshine. 

My mother in law gave me the full DVD of this 'Reflections of Christ' by Mark Mabry. Bryan and I watched it together today and it is a powerful video. Mark is a photographer who has created beautiful images capturing reflections of Christs life. . . The angels are so beautiful and I am pretty sure that is what comforting angels look like. My heart and soul craves the feelings that videos like this one create. I am thankful that Mark is able to share his wonderful talent and love for our Savior with all that desire it.

The Lord, who endows us with these talents, tells us: “I believe you can. I believe you can.” While we are not all equal in experience, aptitude, and strength, we have different opportunities to employ these spiritual gifts, and we will all be accountable for the use of the gifts and opportunities given to us.

Parable of the Talents can be found in  Matthew 24:14-29

I believe we are given talents, each of us have different talents but we ALL have them.  When we share our talents to inspire, bring happiness and goodness and share the love of our savior with others. . .than we will be blessed 10 fold but if we hide them away, bury them then we will lose them.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
