Christmas Music Marathon Day 5

My wife has a talent for creating decorations of all sorts.  Give her some real or artificial  flowers, some ribbon and a few other accessories, and you will be amazed at what she will create.  I will post a few other examples of her work, as it relates to Christmas in the coming days.  Not many people are as talented as my wife is, in this area.  However, we are all talented in some area.
The God of all creation put each of us on this planet for a reason.  He has given every individual a unique personality along with a variety of talents and gifts.  He expects us to use our talents to bring honor and glory to Him.  The greatest gift ever given to man is the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.  Like all gifts, we mus accept that gift before it can become ours.  We must acknowledge our need for a Savior, repent of our sinful behavior, confess our sins to the Lord, accept that Christ is indeed the Son of the Living God and invite Him into our heart.  Christ himself said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me.  To him who overcomes, I will grant to sit with Me on My throne..." (Rev.3:20-21) 
There is a gift waiting for you at the door of your heart.  If you choose to accept it, then all of the other talents and gifts that you possess will make sense and can be used for the purpose for which they were intended.  If you have already accepted that gift of eternal life, then how are you using the other talents that our Creator has blessed you with?  The best way to use most of our gifts, is to give them away in service to Him.


  1. Your wife is indeed talented. I'd love to see more of her handiwork.

    These two videos are my favorites so far this marathon. Loved them both very much.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. I'd pay $20 each for those. Maybe $30. Those are easily as good as or better than anything I'd find in a store.

  3. I am most impressed by your wife's talent! I hope you laud her loudly and proudly! (In this post you certainly do!)

  4. Indeed your wife is talented! I would not like to undo such a beautifully presented gift!
